Growth Pole Development

Establishing a Development Authority in the 4Cs Region

Prepared by Nicole Siew for the Economic Development Board.

  • The need exists to recommend that an authority be established in the 4Cs Growth Pole Region charged with the responsibility of developing and coordinating development plans for the region.
  • Previous recommendations sent to the minister suggested that this agencies institutional and legislative framework be similar to that of The East Port of Spain Development Company.
  • Dr. Driver has suggested that Community Improvement Services Limited (CISL) be the shell for the 4Cs agency.
  • This presentation presents 3 possible methods for using this agency.
  • The EDB should select the option it deems most relevant to be developed and submitted to Minister for deliberation.
  • One should note that the research team advises that option one would be the most time efficient option.

Option 1: CISL as the executing agency

  • This would require:
    • Legislative and institutional reform
      • New mandate (relatively simple to execute)
      • Legal scope/authority to execute its role and function
      • redeveloped organizational structure; new divisions and posts capable of planning and executing a holistic development plan similar to that of the EPOSDc
        • Consider the relevance of the current BOD
    • Increased funding for internal operations and execution of development plans
    • Determine the funding source
    • Some projects can be implemented before proposed changes are enacted

Expanded Organizational Structure


Option 2: CISL as a Strategic Partner

  • CISL would be one of the agencies that the 4Cs development company would be required to coordinate to ensure that it conforms to its development objectives
  • The creation of a new agency
    • Requires cabinet approval
    • This process would be lengthy
    • Cannot implement any projects until the structure is approved

The diagram depicts how CISL and the development agency would interact


Option 3: Consolidated as a division

  • CISL can be consolidated as a division within the 4Cs development agency charged with a specific task of executing development plans that require construction and regeneration.
  • The draw backs of creating a new agency are still evident here
