Five chairmen from statutory corporations face the public to give reports on their stewardship, at the Barbados Labour Party’s (BLP) 81st annual conference to be held in Queen’s Park.

It will be one of the highlights of the October 25 to 27 conference whose theme is BLP 2019 – A Refreshing Change for Barbados.

“We’ve asked for the five chairpersons of boards to report to Barbados. It will be streamed to all Barbadians and this is the first time that this has happened at the conference. We are asking the chairmen of the Barbados Port, the Transport Board, the Barbados Water Authority, the Sanitation Service Authority and the Queen Elizabeth Hospital to report on their stewardship and reflect on the challenges, their leadership and direction they are going and just to be part of the idea we are an open, transparent, honest Government,” said chairman of the conference planning committee, Kirk Humphrey at a media briefing yesterday.
