While composing an article looking back at highlights from the 1998 PLP platform, it was interesting to come across the section on sound economic management. Here are a few points that sparked attention
- Strengthen the Office of the Government Auditor
- Ensure that public funds are disbursed only when properly authorized and accounted for in accordance with the appropriate Parliamentary processes
- We will be a facilitator and regulator, who will not compete with private business
- We will introduce new standards of revenue management and will root out waste and inefficiency.
