LIME pledge


Share post:

Barbados is in line to receive a significant share of $2 billion in new investments that longstanding telecommunications provider Cable & Wireless has in store for the Caribbean.

Saying his company, which trades as LIME in the region, was keen to emerge from a “painful period” that included “wars” with trade unions and a barrage of customer complaints about bad service, LIME Caribbean chief executive officer Martin Roos told the DAILY NATION yesterday: “We are different, we are here to stay and we are back big-time.”

He also said that once LIME was able to emerge from “the negative spiral we have had for some time” and started to make more money, increased employment was a likely consideration.

Roos was speaking during an interview at LIME’s Windsor Lodge, St Michael offices. He is in Barbados for a series of meetings with key stakeholders and has told them, including Prime Minister Freundel Stuart, that “rumours” of the company’s departure from the region were untrue.
