Barbados: Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley recounted the accomplishments of the Government of Barbados in the pursuit of that excellence following the last two weeks. 

She said that she maintains that it is this Government’s mission to make Barbados the best place to live. And to that extent, today, she spoke to the nation to update them on the actions and progress this Government has made in the pursuit of that excellence following the last two weeks.

“Our drive to deliver during these travels has seen us establish the design for the new National Stadium, which, through a grant from China, will see a state-of-the-art stadium facility built in Waterford, St Michael. This new National Stadium will incorporate aspects of Barbadian culture and seat 10 000 people, more than double the current capacity, “said the prime minister. 

This, in itself, is a major development for the country, and it falls in line with their plans to create a world-class environment for their athletes to succeed on the local, regional and international scene.

PM Mia Mottley said that they’ve been able to achieve more than that. As a result of their international drive:

• The Government of the United Kingdom issued their support for the Bridgetown Initiative.

• It was announced that Barbados will be the host of the world’s first Global Supply Chain Forum which will be held in May 2024,

• Barbados was chosen to become the regional headquarters of the Afreximbank,

• Natural disaster clauses were agreed to by the World Bank and the UK government, following on from Barbados’ lead, being the world’s largest issuer of commercial paper with natural disaster clauses,

• Barbados entered into a number of agreements of cooperation with the People’s Republic of China in a number of key developmental areas.

She said, “Meanwhile, they equally recognised that our regional engagement continues to be important. And recognising that CARICOM will be celebrating 50 years next month, they have taken the decision to recognise this important regional institution by declaring July 31, 2023, as a National Public Holiday.” 

Barbadians, PM Mottley said that these are just a few things they have done and continue to do on your behalf. Over the next coming days, they will continue to share these developments with the audience. They are accountable and we are committed to delivering for our people, here at home and abroad.
