PM: We can count on private sector


Share post:

PRIME MINISTER Freundel Stuart has given the private sector the assurance that Government is committed to enabling business facilitation, despite  the “rumblings”, “lamentations” and “the Jeremiahs”.

He told a capacity-filled auditorium at yesterday’s Barbados Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI) luncheon at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre that he was satisfied Barbados could boast of a private sector that was “interested in the development of Barbados”.

“When this country has been challenged by significant economic events, we could always count on the private sector of Barbados to be there,” he said.

In an ad lib presentation entitled Barbados At 50: Reflections On A Relationship, Stuart touched on several areas of concern to the private sector, while commending it for the role it played whenever the island was challenged by significant economic events.
