A full reopening!

That’s what the Social Partnership group monitoring Government’s economic recovery programme wants to see.

The committee is concerned about Barbados’ slow rate of growth of the economy and the negative impact this is having on the country’s ability to rebound from the COVID-19 pandemic.
