“Project Future is not designed as a short-term, quick-fix programme. This Progressives-led Government is determined to deliver lasting change which achieves the ambitious goals this country needs. Therefore, we have designed Project Future as a programme to be implemented over the next five years….This is a bold move – but it is the right move – if we are to put the needs of our country before political expediency…it is right for the Government to take a long term view and to put in place the delivery of the reforms this country needs. If we remain bound to electoral cycles we remain bound to short-term action that will not tackle some of the fundamental issues we face. However, taking the long term view that our country needs cannot become an excuse for inaction and we need to ensure that progress toward our ambitious goals is maintained”.
The Premier, the Hon. Alden McLaughlin, MBE, JP, from Statement to the LA on 8 June, 2016,on the Presentation of the Project Future Update Report, May 2016.
