Time for a national dialogue on sport

The time has come for a national forum on sport that allows for a more studied, professional approach to the shaping of the future development strategy to be employed in this country. While such a forum must inevitably involve the governmental authorities it must also be non political and certainly non partisan. Admittedly this is a very difficult undertaking given the nature of the governmental appointments.
The national forum must also cater for the schools and the communities around St Vincent and the Grenadines.
There needs to be a more concerted effort made to facilitate national discourse o\n sport such that we can move expeditiously from the lip service to sport currently in vogue.
We cannot afford to undermine or undervalue sport as a vehicle for national development in aspect that are infinitesimally more far reaching that pan would ever be.
