Barbados ‘a unique idea’
IT WAS THE PHILOSOPHY and foresight of late Prime Minister Errol Barrow that heralded the concept of Barbados being the gem of the Caribbean.
Prime Minister of St Vincent and the Grenadines, Dr Ralph Gonsalves, believes that such a mantra and self-belief will be the qualities that will take Barbados successfully through its current economic crisis and into the future.
He shared this view while delivering the featured speech at the annual Errol Barrow Memorial Lecture And Awards Ceremony at the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus on Friday.
Gonsalves described the late National Hero as a rare quality, a revolutionary leader and a visionary regionalist whose contribution to national and regional development was priceless.
