Wheel Chair Syndrome

In my opinion, wheel chair syndrome is indispensable, given our demographical and geographical nature, and the bilateral and multilateral commitment. It is to our own manageability weaknesses and misconception that such assistances allude to dependency theory. Similarly, our provincial governments depend entirely on the national government for various provincial development budget.
Economically, we cannot meet or sustain our own developmental aspirations and needs. Our main basket (finance) continues inadequately meet its obligation becasue of small national revenue collection which determines our national budget despite claims of rich natural resources which are depleting at an alarming rate with a rise in population. What else can smallness and islandness do?
