News coming out of the Office of the Premier on Montserrat indicates that the final version of the Economic Growth Strategy and Delivery Plan for
Montserrat is now available online.
The Economic Growth Strategy
(EGS) 2018-2022, was developed by the Government of Montserrat, and will act as the guide for public investment over the
next several years; with the goal of the eventual re-balancing of the economy
from public sector driven to private sector led.
The EDS seeks to accomplish this by analysing the potential of key sectors that have been identified as the most economically viable with the ultimate goal of long-term sustainability. The EGS ensures that actions are tied to these goals by clearly outlining a delivery plan which details the responsible agencies and time-frames for accomplishing tasks geared towards achieving economic milestones. The strategic focus of the EGS is expected to go beyond 2022 as it will dovetail into the development of the new Sustainable Development Plan (2021).
The EGS & Delivery Plan is available in the publications section of the Government of Montserrat website.
