The government this afternoon revealed its economic plan for the future.

‘Vision2020, was launched with an event organised by the Department of Economic Development for the local business community.

Chief Minister Allan Bell MHK opened the event.

He said: ‘We can be justifiably proud of our economic performance over the past 30 years. Government and the private sector have worked hard to build a strong, diverse economy with a growing international reputation for leadership on global issues.

‘However, this in itself is not a guarantee of future success.

‘The global environment is more challenging and competitive than it has ever been.

‘As a result, our economy will continue to change.

‘It is therefore vital that we have a clear economic vision for how our community can continue to prosper underpinned by specific strategies and actions to deliver that prosperity. Vision2020 is designed to fulfil this need. I and all in my government are committed to this vision as we work to grow our economy for the good of all.’

The Vision2020 strategy document can be viewed here.
