Ivan O’Neal – competent and qualified to be the SVG Minister of Finance

The core problem facing St. Vincent and the Grenadines is the lack of competent management of the public accounts. The situation is so serious that, the 1979 constitutionally-appointed Director of Audit failed the SVG Minister of Finance, Gonsalves, on the audit of public accounts for 2008, 2009 and 2010.

Gonsalves is not a university graduate in finance; he has shown he is hopeless in the management of the public accounts, mismanaging the SVG public accounts with fiscal deficits for the years 2005 to 2015.

The Leader of SVG Green Party, Mr Ivan O’Neal is more competent and qualified to be SVG’s next Minister of Finance.

SVG Green Party Leader, Mr Ivan O’Neal, obtained a BSc honours degree in Accounting and Finance from Oxford Brookes University, England. He learned the accounting and financial skills needed to give our country competent financial leadership.

SVG Green Party Leader, Mr Ivan O’Neal, obtained a Masters degree in Macro-Economic Budgeting, Planning and Policy from Bradford University, England. He learned the macro-economic skills needed to give our country competent economic leadership and to create revenue and economic growth.

SVG Green Party Leader, Mr Ivan O’Neal, obtained a Masters degree in Business Administration from Leicester University, England. He learned the business and private sector skills needed to give our country the leadership needed to create a strong and thriving private sector in which entrepreneurs and businesses can flourish.

Mr Ivan O’Neal is solid as a leader and highly disciplined, with a calm disposition. He has significant knowledge of the strengths, gross weaknesses, opportunities and threats that are directly associated with the SVG weak economy. More importantly, Ivan O’Neal is not handcuffed to any individual nor organisation. He is not open to corruption; he is honest, trustworthy and reliable.

Mr Ivan O’Neal is a retired Warrant Officer from the British Royal Air Force, having served as an engineer. He held a high position as a military instructor in the Armed Forces of His Highness the Sultan of Brunei. Mr Ivan O’Neal has worked in Singapore and is fully conscious that high quality education and trade, not aid, are the driving force to create a strong and sustainable SVG economy.

Singapore has done it and China is doing it through competent financial management.

Ivan O’Neal can be highly trusted as the next SVG Minister of Finance. He was awarded the Most Blessed Order of Brunei. Warrant Officer Ivan O’Neal won the Royal Air Force Certificate of Merit on 17 August 1989 for initiative and inventiveness towards the improvement of the engineering services of the Royal Air Force. He is an innovator who can solve SVG’s economic and financial troubles.

Mr Ivan O’Neal is a visionary leader and has the inventiveness to create economic growth in SVG. Mr Ivan O’Neal is listed at the Science Library in Holborn London, England, as an inventor. He strongly believes SVG need to invest at least $300 million every year in high-quality education to lift the SVG economy to prosperity.

As SVG Minister of Finance, Mr Ivan O’Neal will abolish the Mustique Act 2002. A fair tax system will prevail. He will cut ties with Taiwan and take back our fish licence. Taiwan has made a massive fortune from the use of SVG’s fish licence and the flying of SVG national flag on its fleet of fishing vessels. Taiwan is a parasite, giving SVG peanuts in return.

Mr Ivan O’Neal will open ties with China and adopt structural change, using high quality education and our own science and technology university as the engine for the creation of thousands of new jobs and revenue, and focus on expanding the SVG yearly budget to $4 billion.

Ivan O’Neal will abolish the $25 fixed charge on your water bills and cut the price of electricity by 50%.

Our goal is prosperity, revenue creation and job creation. At the next general election, vote Green for accountability, transparency and competence in the management of SVG’s public accounts. Vote for jobs and money in your pocket. Put your X next to the Telephone.
