PM: DO MORE

PRIME MINISTER FREUNDEL STUART wants the private sector to do more about investment in the country and show less “analysis paralysis”.
Addressing a meeting of the Democratic Labour Party’s (DLP) St Andrew constituency branch at Alleyne School yesterday evening, Stuart said he would like to see business people “take the ball and run with it” but despite every kind of incentive, concession and waiver being granted for some investments, they had fallen short.
Fielding questions after his two-hour address, he said that despite the quarrelling and complaints sometimes coming from construction magnate Sir Charles Williams and his brother Ralph “Bizzy” Williams, they demonstrated they loved Barbados by investing in it.
According to Stuart, what Barbados needed was a “genuinely concerned entrepreneurial class” less interested in “how we can consume foreign exchange” and more about earning foreign exchange and investing.
