A new Sustainable Economic Development Plan is currently being developed for St Helena. The objectives of the Plan are to:

  •  Provide a vision for the Island’s economic growth
  • Help investors understand St Helena’s strengths as a place to do business
  • Provide direction for decision making, to make it easier for businesses which contribute to economic development
  • Help set direction for Enterprise St Helena

The previous Sustainable Economic Development Plan focused on using tourism as the mechanism by which to grow the economy. Whilst that approach is still very valid, it is now time to widen the focus to other sectors.

A survey has been produced to find out what residents think the future for sustainable economic growth will be on St Helena. Please help us by filling in the survey before, Sunday, 10 September 2017.

If you have any additional comments on what should be included in the next Sustainable Economic Development Plan, please send them in writing to Assistant Chief Secretary (Performance), Paul McGinnety, The Castle, Jamestown or via email:

The survey is available online at:
