Minister for National Planning & Monitoring

Minister for National Planning and Monitoring

The corporate business of the Department of National Planning and Monitoring is to ensure that the development pathway of the country is truly strategic with the reinforcement of the principles of responsible sustainable growth that is human centric focused and coupled with managing the country’s natural endowments responsibly.
Having the National Constitution in mind, the O’Neill - Dion Government crafted the National Strategy for Responsible Sustainable Development (StaRS) which contextualized the shift in the Government's approach to development. The Medium Term Development Plan 2 (2016–2017) embraces this paradigm shift through consolidated sector strategies that are operationalised through the annual budgets.
Importantly, the department is also tasked with the role of monitoring and reporting on outcomes of the Government development plans and policies.
As the Minister responsible for this Department, I invite you all to peruse the StaRS, the MTDP 2 and other strategic policies of the Government and be updated with reports, information and many other interesting events that this department will be undertaking throughout the year.

Welcome to the Department of National Planning and Monitoring Official Website.
