ALTHOUGH a range of pressing issues of national importance came under the microscope, the first Barbados Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI) luncheon of the year also provided the opportunity for business leaders and politicians to share some light moments together.

The event, which was held at Hilton Barbados a day after Prime Minister Freundel Stuart announced a February 21 date for elections, was addressed by Stuart and attended by other members of Cabinet and parliamentarians, BCCI members and other business people.

Before and after the formalities and discussions on the topic Barbados: From Stabilization To Growth, they took time out to chat. (MM)
