PRIME MINISTER MIA AMOR MOTTLEY says Barbadians can “take it easy” this Christmas knowing their country is “punching above its weight” again.
And while making it clear she could not “promise a rose garden” in 2019, she promised that by this time next year, fewer people would have reason to complain.
Delivering an hour-long Ministerial Statement in the House of Assembly on Tuesday, Mottley rattled off a series of achievements of her administration in its first six months in office.
“As the first six months leave us, we have reached our milestone, the first bell can be rung, Barbados is back. This Christmas you can take a breather, but being back is never enough because the journey has to continue. We are on track, we are passing the right road signs, but there is still much further to go,” the Prime Minister told the Lower Chamber.
“I am proud to report this evening that using every yardstick and every other measure available to me, that this noble mission has been accomplished. Barbados is on the road again, Barbados is this evening punching above its weight and for this, we must thank the good people of Barbados.” (SC)
