YESTERDAY’S MORE THAN five-hour Estimates presentation by Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler was nothing more than an admission of absolute failure, charged Opposition Leader Mia Mottley (below).

And she has accepted an invitation from Sinckler to give recommendations on how to salvage the island’s economy from its dire state, although she said she had offered solutions in the past. mia-mottley

In her presentation in the House of Assembly which lasted just under an hour, Mottley blasted Government for its handling of the economy that left the country with just under ten weeks of foreign reserves.
