Draft growth strategy published

25 August 2011

The Minister for Economic Development, Senator Alan Maclean, has published a draft Economic Growth Strategy to continue the process of economic policy development in Jersey.

The draft strategy, entitled “Quality of Life Through Economic Success” is published following extensive research and consultation between the Economic Development Department, key representative bodies such as the Chamber of Commerce and the Institute of Directors, and a number of local business entrepreneurs. The key objectives of the draft strategy are to deliver a balanced and diversified economy that provides job opportunities for all residents and facilitates sustained economic growth to fund public services that support the quality of life of all Islanders.

Senator Alan Maclean said "Jersey has emerged from the global economic downturn in an enviable position compared to other jurisdictions but it is essential that we now plan how to build on that position and continue to deliver economic strength and success.

"We still face many challenges but by working closely with our key industries, encouraging more entrepreneurship and government taking a more supportive rather than interventionist role, I believe we can overcome those challenges and create a better quality of life for all."

The draft Economic Growth Strategy has been published and a consultation page has been set up on the States of Jersey website.

A number of public workshops will be held in September.
