The mo­tion states that its 124 ac­tion points do not rep­re­sent and ex­haus­tive list, but “their im­ple­men­ta­tion is crit­i­cal to the cre­ation of an en­vi­ron­ment more con­ducive t o t he growth and ex­pan­sion of the econ­omy, the cre­ation of jobs, send­ing the right sig­nals to the pri­vate sect or, and, i mprov­ing t he wel­fare of its peo­ple.”

The mo­tion is signed by Op­po­si­tion Chief Whip, Gail Teix­eira, and Op­po­si­tion Par­lia­men­tar­ian, Ir­faan Ali.
