We’re about to start work on a new project in Barbados.  The project is to develop a Human Resources Transformation Strategy, a Human Resources Model and a Strategic Workforce Plan for the public sector.  Our main counterpart Ministry is the Ministry of Public Service and human resources support and advice will be provided to a further five Ministries in the initial stages.  The project is one of several initiatives forming part of the Government’s wide-ranging Public Sector Modernisation Programme.  It is being funded by the Inter-American Development Bank.
