Antigua and Barbuda to host results-focused Seminars
Antigua and Barbuda’s Prime Minister Hon Gaston Browne this morning welcomed Deputy Secretary-General Ambassador Manorma Soeknandan and her Secretariat team to St. Johns for the Antigua/Barbuda leg of the regional sensitization seminars on the CARICOM Results-Based Management (RBM) System.
It is the third stop for the team this week, following visits to Montserrat and St. Kitts/Nevis. Tomorrow the Secretariat team will conduct seminars for State-actors including Parliamentarians and Permanent Secretaries and non State-actors including representatives of the private sector, NGO’s and the media.
The Strategic Plan for the Caribbean Community, approved by CARICOM Heads of Government in 2014, identified the need for a more results-focused approach to programme and project management as a response to the much lamented implementation deficit.
The CARICOM RBM System, whose development was led by the Secretariat with funding from the Caribbean Development Bank, is expected to engender a more results oriented culture at the Secretariat, within Regional Institutions, and importantly, in Member States.
