The ruling Democratic Labour Party (DLP) Government is making a major blunder by distancing itself from certain elements of the business sector.
Opposition Leader Owen Arthur made this charge last night while marking the opening of an office for the St James North branch of the Barbados Labour Party in Thorpes.
Arthur said he was disappointed that at a time key sectors such as tourism and international business were struggling, Government was refusing to meet with leaders in the business community.
