List not good enough
That was how Opposition member Kerrie Symmonds described Minister of Tourism Richard Sealy’s ten point plan to boost the tourism industry.
Symmonds, the Shadow Minister for International Business and Commerce and Trade was swift in his response to Sealy’s press conference yesterday evening. Speaking to the media at the Opposition’s office immediately after the press conference, Sealy said the Barbados Labour Party was disappointed in what the Minister had to say. “We expected a more meaningful and policy oriented intervention,” he said.
In terms of the $10 million dollar window for the retrofitting of air conditioning and lighting in the hospitality sector, Symmonds said the money was way too small to have an impact. (MB)
