Committee for Home Affairs


To insert a new proposition numbered 1A :- 1A. That the Policy & Resources Committee shall coordinate an investigation into measures to optimise the economic participation of Guernsey’s resident population and to increase, wherever possible, the productivity of the island’s workforce. Such an investigation to involve other relevant committees and to include :- [i] Possible measures to encourage older islanders to continue to be economically active, or to increase the level of their economic activity, such measures to include, but not be limited to, fiscal/financial incentives. [ii] Creating a work steam in the next iteration of the Government Work Plan aimed at increasing access to affordable childcare in order to promote greater economic participation by parents. [iii] Consideration of what, if anything, the States could do to encourage the use of mechanisation, robotics, automation and artificial intelligence in order to improve the island’s economic output as a factor of the size of its workforce. [iiii] Consideration of what, if any, changes to the education [including adult education] and training provided in Guernsey might be desirable to achieve the outcomes referred to in this proposition. Such an investigation to take fully into account, and dovetail with, the ongoing work being done by the committees for Economic Development and Education, Sport & Culture on developing Guernsey’s Human Capital.
