2.5 Modernise and strengthen the Public Financial Management System The efficiency and effectiveness of the budgetary process will be strengthened towards better allocation and management of public resources through reform of the public finance management framework and use of IT. 2.6 Reform of the National Statistical System The national statistical system will be reformed to provide timely, reliable and accurate data for improved decision- making and targeted policy formulation. To this end, the National Statistical Institute of Trinidad and Tobago will be established. 2.7 Improve the coordination of national decision-making The aim is to improve horizontal coordination and strategy formulation among central ministries towards the integration and cohesion of government’s decision making function. This will be realised through the institutionalisation of the Centre of Government Model. 2.8 Reforming the foreign affairs ecosystem Advancing our national interest abroad will be achieved by adopting an issues-based paradigm through the transformation of the Ministry of Foreign and CARICOM Affairs. The re-establishment of the Socio-Economic Affairs Division and creation of a Diaspora Affairs Unit and a Foreign Intelligence and Analysis Unit will serve to ensure that our foreign relations redound to the country’s benefit and allow for improved responsiveness to international development. 2.9 Improve efficiency of public institutions Cost efficiency will be introduced by adopting a “Shared Services” Strategy to, in the first instance, enable effective management of support services across more than one ministry. These services include: finance and accounts; facilities management; IT; and fleet management. 93-94 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 Development Strategies to 2020

Goal 3: Public Service delivery will be customer focused Effective governance serves as a catalyst for societal transformation, and key to this transformation is improving service delivery and pursuing service excellence within the Public Sector. As such, the quest for sustainable development requires a modern, efficient Public Service that delivers quality services. Public officers therefore must not only be highly skilled and productive employees, but they must also adopt a more caring and courteous attitude in dealing with the general public. Providing safe and comfortable accommodation for public officers to conduct state business is an important pre-requisite for improved service delivery. Goal 4: Trinidad and Tobago will have modern legal, regulatory and law enforcement systems Advancing the country’s development agenda will require the continuous review, modernisation and strengthening of the legal and legislative framework. This must be done in tandem with the on-going reform efforts within the judicial system, like case management, as well as improving the administration of the court system, where financial autonomy is one key consideration.

    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.
