Ready to work with PM Stuart
The local business community is ready to work with a re-elected Freundel Stuart Administration.
And so is CARICOM partner Guyana, as indicated by the head of that country. Following last Thursday’s general election in which the Democratic Labour Party was returned to office and Stuart to the office of Prime Minister, the Barbados Chamber of Commerce and Industry today congratulated both.
“The Barbados Chamber of Commerce and Industry joins with all Barbadians in congratulating Prime Minister Freundel Stuart and his team within the Democratic Labour Party on their victory at the polls to serve another term in Government,” the organisation said in a congratulatory message.
“The Chamber looks forward to continuing the very strong working relationship that it has forged with the incumbent administration. The BCCI is confident that a strengthened public/private partnership will go a long way in fostering sustained economic and social development for Barbados,” it added.
Guyana President Donald Ramotar also congratulated Stuart in a message released by that country’s Government Information Service.
“On behalf of the Government and people of Guyana and on my own behalf, please accept our sincere congratulations on the success of the Democratic Labour Party and your election as Prime Minister at the general elections,” he said.
“I extend my best wishes to you as you prepare to take up the mandate that the people of Barbados have entrusted to you in leading their nation and in continuing the execution of the policies of the Democratic Labour Party for greater economic and social prosperity.
“I look forward to continuing our collaboration at the bilateral and regional levels in pursuit of the goals for an enhanced relationship between Guyana and Barbados and for the strengthening of our integration process for the mutual benefit of our peoples and the people of the region as a whole,” he added.
