• Change the current development model and define and measure progress in a balanced way that stresses economic security and social and environmental sustainability.  
• Ensure that natural resources are developed sustainably and benefit the common good over private profit.  
• Drive a strong indigenous economy through links with appropriate Foreign Direct Investment, state-owned enterprises and investing in specific local enterprise strategies.  
• Regulate banking to change the culture from one of speculative banking to one where currently state-owned banks and new local banking models focus on guaranteeing credit to local enterprises and communities.  
• Prioritise a legally binding national sustainable development strategy that caps resource use, reduces greenhouse gas emissions and implements measures to protect our life support systems.
