Prime Minister Freundel Stuart says his Government has gone all out to put the people of Barbados “first”, protect the island’s private sector and maintain the strength of the Barbados dollar.
In a near one-hour presentation yesterday before a packed Hilton Barbados ballroom, Stuart laid out his administration’s efforts over the past five years to the island’s leading businesspeople and corporate executives.
His address to the Barbados Chamber of Commerce & Industry (BCCI) came 24 hours after he announced the long-awaited date for general elections on Thursday, February 21.
Saying his Government had to manage the economy as major trading partners like Britain faced a “triple dip recession”, he credited the “quality of the social fabric” for producing “a peace and political stability” that continued to attract investors and visitors.
