CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER of Grantley Adams International Airport (GAIA), David Barrow, says Barbados has to step up its game if it is to remain competitive on the world market.

Addressing the opening ceremony of Airport Week yesterday, Barrow said countries such as St Vincent and Antigua were set to improve their tourism offerings, and that could spell increased competition for Barbados.

He said that St Vincent would soon open a new international airport and Antigua’s expansion plans included four boarding bridges.

“The impact in St Vincent may be significant . . . . We may lose some traffic,” Barrow said.  (LK)

I am a little Baffled by this statement from the CEO of the GAIA, is it not his job as CEO to see that that Airport is on the proper Track???
This Statement, QUOTE::"The impact in St Vincent may be significant . . . . We may lose some traffic,” Barrow said." end quote. What is he doing right now to negate those expected losses.
MY QUESTION AGAIN!!! IS THIS NOT WHAT HE IS BEING PAID TO DO??? His statement seems to me to be indicating that it is some other person's job to worry about such happenings.
