The biggest topic of discussion was a follow-up to the handling of Government projects. The island Secretary explained that "projects are not up to par because of the combination of inexperience and also a lack for departmental capacity." This topic was addressed earlier on in the week by the Executive Council seeking to rectify the slow processing of Government projects. Menno van der Velde explained that he will have more time to dedicate to the super vision of each departments projects. Furthermore, a Project Manager should be available to assist as well. A system is now being designed for the tracking of all projects in one repository.

· Tourist Bureau began printing their new brochures for Saba as well as website updates

· The IT network is being expanded to include all Government remote departments on one secure network.

· Public Works stated it is ready to start the project to pave the road to the stone crusher.
