  • Maintain support for SME's and Large Private companies especially in times of Global Financial decline this will help prevent companies effected buy reduced exports and reduced Tourism (Visitors from abroad) as well as reduced local demand for manufactured goods and Services from needing to reduce staff or close down completely.

  • Continue to attract legitimate Foreign Investment.

  • Invest in Local infrastructure thereby improving the country but at the same time providing more job opportunities.
