The Barbados Labour Party’s 81st annual conference will take place in Queens Park this year.

Chairman of the conference planning committee Kirk Humphrey said the location was reflective of the refreshed party as it was open, close to parliament and was a venue where founder Sir Grantley Adams laid many political pronouncements.

Under the theme BLP 2019 – A Refreshing Change for Barbados, the three day conference being held from October 25 to 27, will feature an award ceremony, speeches, an address from the Prime Minister and a concert where members of parliament will perform.

One of the highlights will take place on October 26, when the chairmen of the Transport Board, Barbados Port Authority, Barbados Water Authority, Sanitation Service Authority and Queen Elizabeth Hospital will be giving reports on their stewardship. (CA)
