Time to act


Share post:

THE DETERIORATION of the Barbados economy and a related business downturn are behind private sector agencies’ calls for Government to take corrective action now, instead of just talking about doing something, says Lalu Vaswani.
This, he contends, is the only agenda of his Barbados Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI) and other local private sector entities.
Vaswani was responding yesterday to suggestions that his strident calls for the Government to stop delaying taking correction measures for the economy were motivated by other factors.
Dismissing the suggestions, Vaswani said business owners who have investments here stand to lose everything if the economy fails.
