Finance minister to host meeting of private sector organisations
Published on August 24, 2013 Email To Friend    Print Version

The minister for finance, investment and trade, Washington Misick, will be hosting an open meeting of private sector organisations at 6.30 pm on Monday, 26th August at the Windsong in Providenciales.

Finance Minister Washington Misick
The meeting will be to discuss a major programme of reform aimed at transforming the business environment. The minister will be accompanied by other colleagues, including an adviser who has been contracted to help co-ordinate the programme alongside the chief economist.

The programme’s goal is to make the Turks and Caicos the best place to do business in the Caribbean and thereby to bring about sustained investment and economic growth. Its key elements will be:

• Regulatory reform, particularly concerning business licenses and work permits;

• Overcoming constraints to small business development, particularly through partnership with the private sector;

• Improving the skills of and employment opportunities for Turks and Caicos Islanders through vocational training, apprenticeships and internships, again in partnership with the private sector.

The key to the programme will be a partnership between the public and private sectors.
