During his Budget Vote 2012/13 in Parliament on Tuesday 7th May 2013, the Minister of Economic Development released a report which details progress with the Accords on skills, the green economy, local procurement and basic education.

Considerable work has already been undertaken in the last two years, and there are already a number of successes. This Report is a summary of the outcomes of the work done in improving basic education, expanding skills, local procurement and promoting jobs through greening the economy.

It selects a few case studies to show the work that is being done to implement the Accords.
