BMEX 2016 impresses PM

Prime Minister Freundel Stuart took a detailed tour of BMEX 2016 yesterday evening, stopping at almost every booth to talk with exhibitors and hear of their production plans and constraints.



1XX1XBarbados TODAY captured in photos of  the Prime Minister’s tour during which he appeared impressed with the mops and stools of the Blind and Deaf Association; the clothing displays, the 50th independence mementos and other exhibits. He attempted to beat a tune on steel pan, sampled exotic dishes, and even looked at a coffin.




11XX1X“Every time I come to BMEX, I’m more and more impressed with the innovativeness, the creativity and the very lively imagination of the manufacturers of Barbados,” he told the media during the tour.


“Wherever I’ve gone, I’ve seen evidence of people believing more and more in their environment, using the materials thrown up by the environment and adapting those materials for productive use.


“The manufacturing sector is performing very creditably in the context of a global environment that has been hostile for a little while now. This has not in any way affected the creativity of our local manufacturers,” he said.

    Prime Minister Freundel Stuart took a detailed tour of BMEX 2016 yesterday evening stopping at almost every booth to talk with exhibitors and hear of their production plans and constraints. He need to go to every parish of BIM and see how the other half live instead of having taking a pit stop looking at a coffin and a handbag.

      So you don’t think that the Prime Minister is aware of how the other haft live? When I was in the Military I only saw the Major General of the post, when the division was assembled in formation and that was rare, but he had a pretty good idea of what was going on with all his troops.

      Good point, Veronica. Very good point. Only a real, real politician would do that instead of being at home cozying up in his bed.

      If you don’t respect man, you could at least respect his position sir. I couldn’t stand Owin Arthur because I thought for a Prime minister he was the most unpolished when it came to articulating the English language, but I respected his position enough not to besmear him publicly.

        Guess you were born yesterday and don’t know about Tom Adams when Rastas could not get work in government, You don’t know Bree St.John, You don’t know Erskine Sandiford. Bree could not even win back government after Tom dead. Freundel win back government after Thompson dead. might win again,cause the Christians don’t want to promote same sex marriages.

    The perfect opportunity for him to show up, have a photo op, greet some exhibitors, say how impress he is with their products & wish them well in the future. Something the GG can do equally as well. Never one to miss an opportunity to ride on the success of others. When a champion individual or champion event or performance is being celebrated, a beaming Stuart can be found giving a congratulatory hug or handshake. When he is critique, the common refrain will be that “Freundel en no champion.” The abdominal expansion shows that he has feasted well on the bounty of the fatted calf.

    Philip Matthews, you opinions do not matter you are a disrespectful,joker!It is persons like you who believe that you have originated from some class where you believe that only a certain type of class should lead this country,you have some serious issues and i will suggest to you that you do not let the PM or the office he holds be one of them. Learn some respect and stop allowing your political biases to cloud what little vision you have.
