A hard times wine
Kontact’s survival plan
This Crop Over could be the make-it-or-break-it year for Grand Kadooment bands.
Managing director of Kontact, Anthony Layne, gave this assessment after taking into account the thousands of Barbadians who were laid off in the public and private sectors late last year and this year.
“This will be one of the hardest years I think that bands will encounter. This year is going to be crucial, and if you are not very careful, coming out of this year you might not make it to next year,” he said.
Layne was speaking at Brigade Continued on next page.
