In order to understand the scope of the proposal, we need to know if the previous Strategic Plan is available for review; and if the Government has already conducted the Economic and Workforce Opportunities studies on which the new plan should concentrate in.


The previous Strategic Plan is published in the DEDC’s website.

In relation to the economic and opportunity studies, those prepared by the DWHR are the ones that should be used.
