SOCIAL SCENE: Business breakfast meet

The mood was upbeat with smiles all around after the business sector concluded its annual post-Budget breakfast meeting at Hilton Barbados, on Tuesday.

The assembly of businessmen and women is traditionally a very serious forum as the budgetary proposals are dissected and concerns from all sectors aired.

The exercise was basically the same this time around, the difference being the lighter atmosphere pervading the room, with groups huddled at the end to express their thoughts on what panellists in the on-stage discussion on the Budget had acknowledged as a tough medicine for Barbados’ life-threatening economic problems.

However, buoyed by the prospects the first phase of the Budget offered for recovery, the mood was more light-hearted after the session ended. (GC)
