The Ministry of Business strategic plan is intended to deliver on national economic goals, including the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The development of the strategic plan was undertaken as a Ministry-wide process led by a strategic planning committee of technical staff from the Commerce and Industry Departments. During July 2015 the committee led a series of consultations within the Ministry, receiving input from GO-Invest, GNBS and SBB, which resulted in the creation of a “short term strategic framework for the Ministry of Business”.
This document was presented to representatives of the public and private sectors at a stakeholder consultation in August 2015. Over 50 participants were in attendance and the Ministry received 18 sets of written comments. These included comments from the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), which also offered to provide assistance with the strategic planning process.
