Sidney Collie, Chairman of the Free National Movement (FNM), issued the following statement on ‘Delusional’ PLP Chairman Robert’s comments on the secret BPL business plan:

“Another failure of the PLP Government – another excuse by ‘Delusional’ PLP Chairman Roberts. It has become very predictable that every time the PLP Government is facing a major crisis in their failure as a government they have their party’s ‘delusional’ chairman issue a statement with inside information to the press.

Prime Minister of Antigua and Barbuda, Gaston Browne has taken the decision to withdraw a concession agreement formed with Sandals Antigua back in 2009 and has admonished the Caribbean hotel chain in a terse letter.

What is particularly disturbing is that Prime Minister Browne is failing to recognize a legally-binding document and is insisting that Sandals 'is failing to pay over' agreed taxes without a single shred of evidence offered.

In the main, Caribbean economies are contracting and there is a greater need for Foreign Direct Investment (FDI). This helps to address unemployment and aids gross domestic product...

The effects of that decision will no doubt have some impact upon The Bahamas, CARICOM and CARIFORUM in the long run.
