Share post:

A BUSINESSMAN is crying out for the Government and unions to solve the impasse at the ports of entry.

Eddy Abed, president of the Barbados Chamber of Commerce & Industry (BCCI), made the call while speaking at its open day at Braemar Court, Deighton Road, St Michael, yesterday.

“The slow customs clearance at both ports of entry is something we keep hearing about and we would like to bring some resolution to them as soon as possible,” he said.

“It becomes extremely critical at this time because days are lost because of slow customs clearance and that is an opportunity to sell which you are not going to regain.” (MR)
