Today I remembered a speech given by the CEO of the energy chamber a couple years ago when he posed the question to the audience; what kind of Prime Minister (PM) do you want? Do you want one that’s flying all over the world and building connections plus getting out of the office and meet the different stake holders or one who is working in office?
Much to the surprise of the audience, he stated that a PM that sits in office is not performing the duties in which they are elected to do. It’s imperative that a Prime Minister builds the bridges that are necessary for the continued growth of our economy.
Comments by Jack and Gary Griffith that the PM is hardly in office made me realise how small minded with a lack of vision some people could have. They insinuated that the PM should be in office every day of the week sitting to sign documents. I support the view that the PM’s role is not to sit in an office but to build the connections that are necessary to keep us relevant in the global economy.
