For the second time in the space of one week, a local bank head has reported signs of recovery of the Barbados economy.
Chairman of Republic Bank, Ronald Hartford, told a gathering of prominent Barbadians from the business community on Friday night that the island remained a very desirable place to do business and work.
However, he cautioned that the well recognised quality of “frugality” for which Barbadians had always been known, needed to be restored, starting with the Government.
Hartford’s comments were made during the bank’s Christmas cocktail reception at Port St Charles Marina, where the guest list included Chief Justice Sir Marston Gibson, Sir Charles Williams and his brother Ralph “Bizzy” Williams and driving force behind the Crane Resorts Limited, Paul Doyle. (RRM)
