This preview shows page 57 - 60 out of 156 pages.

Our country will be one in which young people feel confident in their own ideas to seek out and create their own opportunities, engendered by an education system that encourages entrepreneurship and innovation, and prepares learners to take advantage of opportunities in a rapidly changing global environment. Our investments in education will transform the coun- try into a knowledge-based society that improves the ability of local busi- nesses to compete globally. Greater emphasis will be placed on employing innovative practices, creative solutions, skills, ideas and processes that, when combined, act as a springboard for economic growth. Trinidad and Tobago will be a place where the family will be the bedrock of the society and citizens feel confident to raise their families in a safe, secure, peaceful and nurturing environment. More importantly, the Vision is to reduce inequalities and move the country significantly up the scale of human development. Citizens and policy-makers will have responsibilities for promoting good governance, respect for the rule of law, social harmony and environmental protection. The modernisation of the public institutions into responsive, inclusive and participatory decision-making structures is crucial to ensur- ing that the principles of good governance are upheld and strengthened as required. In addition, we envision that efficient and effective government services will be provided to meet the needs of citizens as well as facilitate the ease of doing business.

They can be put to optimum use while being sensitive to environ- mental issues, making greater use of renewable resources and ensuring water, food and energy security.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
