The Government of Antigua and Barbuda is on a Mission to raise the necessary funds to make the Five Islands Campus Of the University of The West Indies a world class facility.
This was stated by Prime Minister Gaston Browne on Saturday.
According to the Prime Minister within the next twelve months, the government is hoping to raise some fifty million dollars and this does include 25 million US dollars that his administration will be seeeking from the Chinese Government.
Prime Minister Gaston Browne in welcoming the campus, said that his government had a fight on the domestic level to achieve the historical decision, but his government was committed to the cause and was therefore unrelenting in moving forward with the mission to have the UWI campus in Antigua and Barbuda.
“There was a lot of partisan politics at the domestic level. But we know that this decision would have emerged as one of the most significant decisions of any government in the history of Antigua and Barbuda. We are very pleased that Antigua and Barbuda has decided to anchor this facility for the benefit of the residents and citizens of Antigua and Barbuda and the wider OECS,” Prime Minister Browne said.
