The study team carried out an extensive programme of primary and secondary research to identify the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats facing the Montserrat economy and to identify future drivers of economic growth as well as establishing growth objectives that are specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and time bound (SMART). In addition, we then set out to produce road maps (logic maps) on how the Plan will be achieved, whilst being mindful of key risks. The study team concluded by setting out a framework for the monitoring and evaluation of the strategy. The research programme undertaken by the study team included a literature review of existing studies and strategies to date , the analysis of economic data about Montserrat and more than 35 technical consultations with a cross-section of Montserratian society as well as public engagement events. Through this process, the study team produced a SWOT analysis, showing the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats facing Montserrat and its economy.
