as hard work, productivity, civic values and respect for the rule of law. The private sector is urged to lead the diversification thrust while Government plays a facilitative role towards development, in terms of creating the enabling environment, reform of the Constitution and effecting key changes to our institutions. Figure 1.1 on the following page shows the process used to prepare the NDS, as well as what it intends to do. The diagram shows that the document is premised on an under- lying philosophy and national policy, which includes for example, the principles of open- ness, transparency as well as inclusiveness. The intention is to have a National Vision and Framework which is embraced by all citizens and stakeholder groups towards developing Trinidad and Tobago for the benefit of all. One of the first steps in developing the NDS was to conduct an assessment of the country’s performance over the last ten years, its current development progress as well as the possible impact of future trends.

performance was also compared to that of selected countries. In addition, key actions were undertaken which included incorporating the views of various key stakeholders in formulating the Vision, goals and strategies and detailing implementation. Technical advice and comments were sought from various experts including those of the Economic Development Advisory Board and the National Tripartite Advisory Committee. This consultative process also included interna- tional and regional development agencies such as the United Nations Development Programme, the Caribbean Development Bank and various Ministries and Departments. It must be emphasised that the National Vision Statement was built from the Vision 2020 National Vision, which was formulated following an extensive consultation process. However, the Statement was updated to include relevant issues such as climate change and renewable energy. Thus, the Vision 2030 National Vision remains valid and relevant. Through a collab- orative process involving teams or clusters of line and oversight Ministries and Departments, the draft national goals were then developed for each thematic area. These goals will drive spe- cific actions to achieve the Vision, taking into consideration the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This consultative process will continue as the NDS is periodi- cally revised to reflect stakeholders’ views and changing socio-economic and environmental circumstances.

    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.
