Economy ‘hurt’ by exodus of non-nationals

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados – The exodus of a number of non-nationals from Barbados in recent times has affected the economy in a negative way. Mia Mottley, leader of the Opposition Barbados Labour Party stated this as she addressed a meeting of the St Vincent and Grenadines Association at the Clement Payne Centre on Monday night. “I am not going to be divisive but I think that the experience of having persons leave our shores has now proven itself to be one that you might want to revisit . . . because the depletion of spending power has . . . proven to be one of those things that has equally contributed to the contraction of the Barbadian economy”.
