Premier Burt said, “Investing in our people and our future are the key tenets of this Government. As outlined on our 2023 Throne, 2024/25 Budget, and Economic Development Strategy – the Government is committed to supporting economic growth by ensuring more efficient, effective and business friendly processes.

And we have listened. So, we want to hear directly from those affected about the obstacles faced and receive recommendations on processes that can be streamlined to reduce frustrations.

“The consultation page launched on March 15, and while the feedback has been encouraging, there is always an opportunity to receive more recommendations. I want to thank those who have provided submissions so far and invite others to submit their input. This your opportunity to have your say. Share your innovative solutions on how we can better assist you to thrive and be successful.”

    This should result in civil service redundancies. If it doesn’t then what are those that worked reviewing and instigating the red tape processes will be doing.

    It sounds to me like Burt and his cronies want some red tape they personally face to vanish. Watch then
    M like a hawk people.

      This “consultation” will be about as meaningful as any other consultation undertaken by the PLP Government and I would be astounded if it led to any redundancy (singular) let alone redundancies (plural).
