Few foreign workers in elegant group
THE HEAD OF Barbados’ biggest hotel group says there is no reason to issue work permits to large numbers of foreign workers in the tourism sector.
Elegant Hotels Group is proof of that.
Sunil Chatrani, its chief executive officer since 2012, said that out of more than 1 100 people across the group’s seven high-end properties, only two were non-Barbadian on work permits providing expert skills.
He revealed that even though work permits were meant to be short-term instruments, the holders often had long-term intentions, which often included taking up residence. (GE)
