MINISTER OF INDUSTRY Donville Inniss today urged Barbadians to be more tolerant of business failures.

"We must not frown upon those who have tried and failed," he said while addressing an entrepreneurial ecosystem development workshop at Courtyard by Marriott in Christ Church.

He charged that Barbadians have often been "unduly harsh" on business people whose initiatives have flopped.

He had a word of praise for those business people who kept on trying despite failures. (TY)
