NCF set for festival surplus
THIS YEAR IS SHAPING UP to be the best ever in the history of Crop Over and should leave the National Cultural Foundation with a small surplus in its $6 million festival budget.
Chief executive officer of the NCF Cranston Browne said yesterday Crop Over 2016 was turning out to be “a really good festival”.
“I think this is one of the best years ever,” Browne said.
He said he also anticipated the same level of financial return as last year when for the first time in many years, the NCF saw a small profit at the end of the festival.
But the CEO still wants to see better funding for the event that he said had become a “critical part” of the Barbados economy. (GC)
