Minister gets earful

Social Share

Minister of Industry and Commerce Donville Inniss got an earful from frustrated tenants of the Pelican Craft Village this morning at a meeting called to allow them to vent their concerns.
Fears of eviction for high rent arrears, lack of promotion of the facility, lack of respect and recognition for the craft sector and an expanded vision for the facility were among the issues raised by the very vocal tenants.
While Inniss promised to address the problems through the landlord the Barbados Investment and Development Corporation (BIDC), he also pointed out that current outstanding rent arrears of over one million dollars  could hamper the BIDC’s ability to do some of the things the tenants wanted. (GC)
