BARBADOS’ ACTING P.M. PRAISES SOCIAL PARTNERSHIP
While Barbados’ Social Partnership has been deemed a success by Acting Prime Minister, Richard Sealy, he stressed that it was a still a work in progress, whose continued development required the support of all stakeholders.
Speaking during the signing ceremony for a six-month extension of Protocol Six at Government Headquarters, he acknowledged while the partnership has had its critics, the model has served Barbados well for some 20 years.
The Acting Prime Minister reiterated that the local tripartite system has been praised across the globe, with several countries now seeking to implement similar structures.
He added that while the Social Partnership had completed several of the objectives outlined in Protocol Six, this extension would allow the body to focus on and continue work in some critical outstanding areas.
