"This chapter seeks to explore some of the issues associated with maintaining the economy, as well as, ensuring that all Bermudians have the opportunity to share in Bermuda’s prosperity.

One area which is very difficult to address is the cost of living and doing business in Bermuda. Bermuda’s small size presents issues of scale throughout the market, which in a number of cases prevents effective competition that could bring down prices. Equally, the high cost of living is simply an indicator of the sustained success of the economy and an increase in disposable incomes."

The implementation Plan takes the primary and secondary priorities set out in the Sustainable Development Strategy and breaks them down further. It sets them out under five broad themes:

• Theme 1: Building and Maintaining an Inclusive Strong Economy
• Theme 2: Transforming Governance and the Public Sector
• Theme 3: Protecting and Enhancing our Environment and Natural Resources
• Theme 4: Sustaining our Communities
• Theme 5: Living within Bermuda’s Limits

For each priority, the Implementation Plan

• offers some background, defining the particular issue in question;
• sets some short- and medium-term objectives, and where possible, targets;
• offers some options for actions to achieve those objectives;
• suggests actors, both governmental and non-governmental;
• suggests timelines for delivery; and
• sets out what is already being undertaken by Government.
