Opening Remarks - Mr. Richard Blewitt, United Nations Resident Coordinator and UNDP Resident Representative - UN MSDF Strategic Planning Retreat (3 December 2015)

The objective of today’s Strategic Planning Retreat (SPR) is to present the synthesized results of the national consultations that were held across the Caribbean, including in Trinidad and Tobago. These synthesized results will produce a set of key strategic priorities and expected results for the region as well as at the national level.

This process will allow the development of a national programming document that is aligned to the strategic priority areas at the regional and country level, and aligned to the Government’s policy framework and the next long term development plan for the country, Vision 2030
