Islands Plan to be Formally Adopted
The Islands Plan – the Falkland Islands Government’s ‘road map’ for the future of the Falklands – is to be formally adopted by the Legislative Assembly. Councillor Andrea Clausen said many components of the Plan, such as improving education and health, were already included in the regular budget. By linking it to the legislative process, Cllr Clausen said, budget managers could be sure their department was ‘meeting the business objectives of the country’. The formalisation of the Plan, which is reviewed on an annual basis, was approved by Executive Council on 25 June.
