Democratic Labour Party candidate for St James Central George Connolly believes that the Barbados economy has stabilised.
Speaking during a national meeting last night in support of St Lucy candidate Denis Kellman at Pie Corner, Connolly said the Freundel Stuart-led administration started to improve the economy.
“I’m telling you that this economy and this country that we love so much has started to stabilise. The indices are going up, tourism numbers are up, the debt is coming down, the revenues are starting to go up. The economy is starting to grow ever so slightly. We are not out of the woods so this is not the time to mess about,” he said.
Connolly told the DLP supporters not to be side-tracked and not to fall victim to what may seem like attractive promises.
“I know you are waiting on your VAT returns, we know it’s hard. But we have held firm, we have stood strong and it has paid off. Tomorrow night in Oistins, the DLP will show you that we have sustainability. Now that we have a foundation that we can grow on, we will show you how to get to stable ground again,” he added.
He promised those gathered that the DLP had a plan that was solid and made sense. (DB)
