Banks told to step up


Share post:

THE BANKING COMMUNITY in Barbados needs to do more for the people it serves.

That suggestion comes from executive chairman of the Barbados Lumber Company Ltd., Rawle Brancker, who was speaking yesterday at the official opening of the upgraded facilities of the Speightstown, St Peter store.

“If you don’t innovate, you’re going to evaporate,” he warned.

“We need to look at doing things together that will signal to the community that we’re not just there to make money. We’re there to help. And help is a blessing that is not plentiful.”

Brancker shared the view expressed by several Government ministers that the small business sector was the medium through which Barbados could recover. (YB)
