Springer: Red tape a burden


Share post:

CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER of the Barbados Hotel and Tourism Association (BHTA), Sue Springer, is appealing to Government and other stakeholders to meet with the BHTA to discuss the hurdles being faced by hoteliers in upgrading their properties.

She said while everyone was complaining about the state of the tourism product being offered, hoteliers were at their wits end with the obstacles they were meeting in getting the necessary inputs for upgrading their properties.

More than 14 hotels are closed for summer renovations, and Springer complained yesterday that those properties doing major refurbishments were having major issues, encountering the kind of red tape that made it difficult to obtain the materials needed. The frustration extended to other areas of the upgrading process.
