Herbert: March changed nothing

Social Share

OUTSPOKEN PRIVATE SECTOR leader Charles Herbert is disappointed Government has not budged despite last month’s protest march by thousands of Barbadians.

Herbert, who is chairman of the Barbados Private Sector Association, said he was feeling “quite browbeaten” that despite already having numerous proposals, the Freundel Stuart administration had convened a committee he was told would likely present it with “at least” 150 new recommendations.

He also said that at a time when senior Government officials needed to “roll up their sleeves” and help resolve Barbados’ economic problems, they were opting to wait for suggestions they would reject or implement slowly.

Herbert voiced his frustration Wednesday night at the Savannah Hotel during an Institute of Chartered Accountants of Barbados discussion on the economy. (SC)
