OPPOSITION LEADER Owen Arthur says privatizing state agencies would not be simply removing them from Government, but more important, letting workers become part-owners.

“Privatization just doesn’t mean selling to the private sector,” he said. “It really means getting the private sector more involved in developing Barbados. The country urgently needs that now.”
