The Chairperson greeted everyone and wished them a good year with campaigning for the 2019 elections. She noted that the term is coming to an end on 28 March; hence the need to make sure that by that time everything is concluded. Discussions of the report should have started in the previous week; due to circumstances beyond control, it had to be shifted to today.

Economic Development Legacy Report
The Chairperson said the purpose of the meeting was just to table the report and then Members can go back and look at the report. She noted that this is the Committee’s legacy and it has to be sure of what is being left behind. Therefore, there is a need to make sure that the report is clear and reflective of the work done for the past 5 years. Members were encouraged to go and look at the report and make sure that they are well represented by the report. If any of the members felt that there is an area which is not adequately represented, they should feel free to inform the Committee so that it can be resolved. Additionally, if any member felt that the report was overly representing the Committee they were free to table it so that it can be corrected.
