transparency, integrity and accountability. It will also ensure the delivery of predictable, excellent service to our people by putting citizens at the centre of public service delivery. Government is also committed to building capacity and ensuring that the resources, structures and systems are approved for the implementation of Vision 2030. Further, encouraging ‘buy-in’ from the public and other stakeholders for this Development Strat- egy through consultation and sustained commu- nication will increase the chance of successful outcomes. As such, Government will engage all segments of society in the development process. PRIVATE SECTOR Government will develop partnerships with the private sector as it enables a platform for dia- logue between businesses and government to ensure that in the long run the private sector becomes the driver of economic growth. In so doing, participation of the private sector in public projects, via PPPs, and the provision of first-hand information to Government on improving the ease of doing business will be critical in encour- aging growth. While institutional reforms and macro-economic policy are under the purview of Government and government agencies, it is expected that in respect of the diversification agenda, the private sector will take ownership and leadership of key initiatives with the Government providing support and facilitation as required.

LABOUR As Government seeks to undertake major ini- tiatives such as Local Government Reform and many other transformational adjustments to our key institutions, civil society and labour will play a crucial role in the development process and implementation. The proposed approach to labour is outlined in Chapter five, under the Guidelines for Incomes Policy. 37 CIVIL SOCIETY Trinidad and Tobago has over 3,000 Non-Gov- ernment Organisations (NGOs) 38 . These NGOs, which span many sectors are primarily Faith Based Organisations and operate mainly in the social sector. Government recognises the impor- tance of NGOs in the country’s development and intends to partner with these organisations, so that together, our interventions are more impact- ful. In so doing, it is recognised that there is need for a suitable institutional mechanism that will facilitate deeper interaction and collaboration among Gov- ernment, NGOs and the society. Despite the limited success of past attempts in achieving this, renewed efforts will be made towards this agenda. This mechanism, will not only facilitate collaboration but also serve to strengthen NGOs through improved governance standards and greater technical capa- bility and efficiency. This mechanism will include

    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.
