Share post:

Sir Branford Taitt, a former Minister of Trade and Industry, has been honoured for his sterling contribution to manufacturing.
Surrounded by his family and friends at his Rock Dundo, St Michael home yesterday, an emotional Sir Branford said it was a “magnificent pleasure” to be recognized by the Barbados Manufacturers Association (BMA).
“To be chosen like you have chosen me is so special and so different. It reminds me of the day I got married,” he said. “I think this honour will go down in history as the most special honour given to anyone.”
Sir Branford made special mention of former BMA president Frank DaSilva and businessman Muhammad Nassar for their efforts in promoting manufacturing.
“I had no idea what to expect. You have surprised me, you have lavished me, you have made me feel special. I am a happy man,” said a delighted Sir Branford.
