bility and efficiency. This mechanism will include compensation, training and auditing policies. An improved NGO sector will not only have greater development impact, but will also be able to attract more funding as well as short-term volunteers and long-term career workers. 38 Inter-American Development Bank's Non-Government Organisations Listing. Government will continue to lend support to NGOs’ whose projects and programmes are aligned to the development needs of the country. At the same time, there is need to review these concessions with the intention of avoiding duplication of limited resources and to maxi- mise impact. A call is also made for citizens establishing new NGOs to consider non-traditional, non-dupli- cative areas in which development interventions are critically needed. These include sectors such as agriculture, energy, the environment and ICT, areas in which the skills of many new graduates and volunteers could be utilised. THE DIASPORA Government recognises the potential contribu- tion of the Diaspora to economic growth such as through increased trade via access to new mar- kets and Foreign Direct Investment (FDI). Gov- ernment will seek to engage not only the Trini- dad and Tobago Diaspora but indeed the wider Caribbean Diaspora. As a first step, an assess- ment of the Diaspora profile including areas for possible collaboration will be undertaken. Addi- tionally, a structure to enable transfer of knowl- edge and skills to the public and private sectors, civil society and other segments of society must be developed. In so doing, Government will offer financial and non-financial incen- tives and assurances to entice Dias- pora resources. These can include easier access to legal status, citi- zenship, building capacities of exist- ing services and institutions deal- ing with migration and Diaspora 123-124 V I S I O N 2 0 3 0 N AT I O N A L D E V E L O P M E N T S T R AT E GY 2 0 1 6 - 2 0 3 0 Implementation and Results

issues, and reduced bureaucratic procedures and administrative hurdles for cross-border transactions. GLOBAL PARTNERSHIPS As a small island developing economy, Trini- dad and Tobago must, out of necessity, engage with the rest of the world as it seeks to open up an economic space for itself. Not only has inter-dependence among states heightened due to globalization and technology, but bor- ders have become more porous particularly in areas such as health and security. These cross border issues can only be addressed in concert with other countries. Trinidad and Tobago’s Foreign Policy will, there- fore, continue to be based on the pursuit of its national devel- opment agenda, namely, promoting sustainable development, peace and citizen security. The pillars of the country’s foreign policy are therefore: (i) consistent and effective relationship with the United States of America (ii) closer cooperation and collab- oration with Latin America, (iii) A resurgent relationship with the European Union and Britain, and (iv) deepening our relationship with Africa and Asia. Trinidad and Tobago will also continue its participation in regional and international fora.

    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.
