The Commerce and Employment Department has announced that it will present a review of its achievements against its published Business Plan and implementation of its Economic Development Framework in 2014. Importantly, the Department will then go on to set its targets for 2015 and key work that needs to be achieved as it goes on to further implement key work streams.
The presentation will take place on Wednesday 21st January. A morning presentation at 9am to be held at St Pierre Park Hotel is being staged for the business community and there is an open invitation to an evening presentation at 7pm for the general public to attend and learn more. Deputy Kevin Stewart, Minister for Commerce and Employment said:
"It's important that the Department benchmarks its progress to date and demonstrates that we are listening and working with the business community as we go forward. The 2015 Business Plan will be launched and the aim is to demonstrate the progress that has been made, challenges that the Department has been working through and importantly next steps. We would actively like to encourage people to attend to learn more and get involved".
The Commerce and Employment Minister will give an introduction and then Jason Moriarty, Chief Officer, will deliver a presentation on behalf of the Commerce and Employment Board and staff team. Board Members and the Senior Management Team, will be available for a question and answer session following the presentation.
Jason Moriarty, Chief Officer, Commerce and Employment said:
" As our employment sectors evolve and we commit to creating new economic opportunities, it is important to create a good level of understanding and to justify and explain decisions that have been taken at various junctures - as well as next steps. It is important to work with industry to recognise success and build confidence as well as acknowledge challenges - and address how these are being tackled.
We will cover key projects from financial services development to tourism to renewables, planning, air and sea transportation, sea fisheries, the Dairy review, Sunday Trading, wider retail, right through to the range of business as usual client services that the Department provides every day."
