Cherry hits back at Persaud 


Share post:

Businessman Anderson Cherry says he is more interested in the well-being of Barbados and its people than any bottom line.

Cherry, the operator of Reduce Quarry in Lower Estate, St George, was responding to comments made by economist and financial analyst Professor Avinash Persaud, during the recent Barbados International Business Association conference at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre.

Persaud said Government and businesses had to have different priorities as while the latter was “often more concerned with the bottom line, Government usually had to take other factors into consideration”.

He drew reference to Cherry’s quarry, which residents in the area had recently bitterly complained about, citing issues with smoke and a stench. This eventually led to Cherry shutting down his composting activities and only storing inert material. (CA)
