THE SEVEN MILLION dollars plugged into Barbados’ 50th anniversary celebrations appears to be money well spent.

Not only is Prime Minister Freundel Stuart saying that the events held so far have been very “impressive”, “encouraging” and “well-patronised”, but he is giving the assurance that the Government “continues to keep the ship of state steady and on a growth path in a still volatile global economic environment”.

Stuart spoke to the performance of the country during the featured address at the three-day Barbados Network Consultation fourth Biennial Diaspora Conference, which got under way at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre yesterday.

“The challenges of downturn and recession are being courageously and creatively navigated.

That perspective continues to inform our policy development focus,” Stuart told the gathering. (YB)
