Vision2040 will focus on four main policy pillars: The Economy,
Governance, Social Policy and the Environment (Natural and Built).
A strong and stable economy
is essential to growth and development. The economy is where social policy,
governance and the environment interact to create value and prosperity. The National Development Plan will identify strategies that
can make the Bahamian economy more resilient, create job opportunities
for Bahamians and promote entrepreneurial activities and ownership.
In The Bahamas we celebrate our independence,
and recognize that some of our greatest strengths are our democratic institutions.
Through the National Development Plan, best practices will be highlighted to guide
the governance of our institutions so we are a more efficient and modern nation. This is how we can ensure our democracy works to best serve the
interests of all Bahamians.
In a small nation like The Bahamas, we must
all work together to improve our society. The National Development Plan will outline the policies our country needs to improve the things our citizens’ value
most, like public safety, healthcare, education and social services. Through
strong social policy we can better develop into a more vibrant nation and
ensure each and every Bahamian is a productive and contributing member of
Environment (Natural and Built)
environment in which we live influences every aspect of our lives. In The Bahamas, we value our sun, sand and sea and other
natural assets, while also seeking to invest in strategic infrastructure
projects that help build our nation. The Plan will illustrate ways in
which we can enhance our beautiful natural environment while maximizing the
value of built infrastructure.
