But CM admits delivering 'Our Island Plan' won't be easy

The Chief Minister insists government remains focused on the 'bigger picture' in trying to grow the Isle of Man's offering in challenging times.

An updated version of government's 'Our Island Plan' received Tynwald approval recently which now incorporates an economic strategy until 2026.

Despite getting the green light, four members of the House of Keys and one member of Legislative Council chose not to back the plan.

Alfred Cannan accepts government can't please everyone:

ALFRED CANNAN : We have an economic plan for the future, and on that basis, it's not going to be easy, we know that. We know that times are harsh, that there's the potential of a recession on the cards this year, as if things couldn't get any tougher for people. But, irrespective of that, we've got a plan for jobs, we've got a plan for the economy, we've got a plan for services, and now we've got to get on and deliver it.
