Sectoral Debate 2023 by the Minister of Labour and Social Security, Hon. Karl Samuda, OJ, CD, MP


Minister of Labour and Social Security, Hon. Karl Samuda

Madam Speaker, and colleague Parliamentarians, the Ministry of Labour and Social Security is committed to the Vision of delivering quality labour and social protection services using modern technology, international best practices and sound advice to satisfy our clients and promote their social and economic empowerment.

The events of the last three years have underscored the critical role that this Ministry plays in providing opportunity, stability and social protection. As the country continues to rebound from the effects of the pandemic, we are redoubling our efforts to respond
to the increasing demands for social protection, local and overseas employment opportunities as well as the promotion of industrial harmony.


Madam Speaker, for the 2023/2024 fiscal year, in keeping with the Government’s national strategic priorities, the Ministry has identified 5 Strategic Priorities that will guide our activities over the next twelve months.

Madam Speaker, I have said before that, my Ministry’s portfolio is essentially customer-oriented. Service excellence and committed leadership in customer service delivery are our most critical and urgent priority. We must therefore deliver services to our clients with the right attitude, in a more timely and efficient manner if we are to truly meet their needs.
