LED Activities

Key Projects: Implementation of the 2030 Strategy through five themes: nice place to live and social cohesion, visitor destination and tourism growth, centre of learning and investment in human capital, vibrant economy with sector growth, and low carbon, green hub for sustainable living. The five themes are supported through a variety of programmes, ranging from the Young Entrepreneur Project, which encourages school-going youth to try a hand in running their own business, to 110% Green Forum, which provides a platform for Green Initiatives in the area. The ultimate meeting point for these initiatives is a mosaic of locally-offered programmes to suit local needs, address local demands and encourage economic development in a local context.
Key Investment Opportunities: Current trends lean towards the hospitality industry, services sectors, retail and wholesale, warehousing, and agro-processing; short- to medium-term: Greenfield Residential and Light Industrial Developments.

Financial Audit Outcomes

The objective of an audit of financial statements is to express an opinion on whether the financial statements fairly represent the financial position of the auditee at financial year-end and the results of its operations for the financial year.

The Auditor-General can express one of the following audit opinions:

Clean audit outcome: The financial statements are free from material misstatements (in other words, a financially unqualified audit opinion) and there are no material findings on reporting on performance objectives or non-compliance with legislation.

Financially unqualified with findings: The financial statements contain no material misstatements. Unless the Auditor General expresses a clean audit outcome, findings have been raised on either reporting on predetermined objectives or non-compliance with legislation, or both these aspects.

Qualified audit opinion: The financial statements contain material misstatements in specific amounts, or there is insufficient evidence for the Auditor General to conclude that specific amounts included in the financial statements are not materially misstated.

Adverse audit opinion: The financial statements contain material misstatements that are not confined to specific amounts, or the misstatements represent a substantial portion of the financial statements.

Disclaimer of audit opinion: The auditee provided insufficient evidence in the form of documentation on which to base an audit opinion. The lack of sufficient evidence is not confined to specific amounts, or represents a substantial portion of the information contained in the financial statements.
