Mia: Focus now on performance

BARBADOS’ ECONOMY has stabilised, and now Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley has her eyes set on transforming the country’s ability to perform.

Speaking at yesterday’s Barbados Employers’ Confederation (BEC) annual general meeting and luncheon, she said Cabinet would now focus on legislation aimed at decreasing levels of bureaucracy, and encouraging the efficient facilitation of business, which would combine to help produce growth.

Mottley told the gathering at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre that much had been done in the 11-and-a-half months since her administration took office with the economy on the verge of collapse, but much more was ahead.
