Participation Survey

A new Sustainable Economic Development Plan is currently being developed for St Helena. The objectives of the Plan are to:
·         Provide a vision for the Island’s economic growth
·         Help investors understand St Helena’s strengths as a place to do business
·         Provide direction for decision making, to make it easier for businesses which contribute to economic development
·         Help set direction for Enterprise St Helena
