24/7 a ‘plus’
ADDITIONAL JOBS for Barbadians and more revenue for the business community.
Minister of Industry and Commerce Donville Inniss listed these among the spin-offs from turning Barbados into a “24/7 society”, with businesses able to operate around the clock.
But he noted that some groups, including the trade unions, had concerns about the impact which changes to Barbados’ way of doing business would have, especially on employees.
Inniss was speaking ahead of a meeting set for 10 a.m. tomorrow at his ministry in Baobab Towers, Warrens, St Michael and involving stakeholders, including trade unions, the Barbados Chamber of Commerce & Industry, other employers and the Ministries of Labour and the Civil Service.
