"As a small island we have little ability to influence the tides and currents of global affairs but are strongly influenced by them. Our size and relative isolation makes us uniquely vulnerable to changes in the global economy and uniquely strong in being able to adapt quickly. It also allows a higher level of control over physical borders. A world where surprise, change and uncertainty are the norm requires a degree of forward planning, harnessing economic, environmental and social assets, to chart our course into the next century."
