Invest in Crop Over
PRIME MINISTER Freundel Stuart today urged Barbadians living abroad to consider investing in the big annual Crop Over Festival, whether in the provision of goods or services.
He made the suggestion at the launch of the third Diaspora Conference at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre while addressing several Barbadians – and descendants of Barbadians – based in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Panama and Cuba.
Stuart told the gathering: “Now is a good time to invest in Barbados and help entrepreneurs to link Barbados to its Diaspora in mutually beneficial ways and in so doing create employment and also create wealth.”
He said it was generally believed that the Barbados economic downturn and the changes it had triggered offered enterprising Barbadians at home and abroad several “pathways to prosperity”. (TY)
