Prime Minister praises Focus on Speightstown

The Barbados Government, via both the Culture Ministry and the Barbados Tourism Product Authority, will continue to explore all open avenues to revive Speightstown, once known as Little Bristol, and to ensure its heritage value is maintained for future generations.

Prime Minister Freundel Stuart made this pledge to Barbadians during the launch of the Barbados Lumber Company Ltd's Speightstown warehouse over the weekend, the PM noted there's too much on offer in the Special Development Areas Act, as well as the Cultural Industrial Act, among others, to justify any lack of interest in investment in Speightstown.

Mr Stuart expressed hope these successful lessons would be passed on for generations to come;-

The PM added all Barbadians must patronise this Barbadian business and to see the expansion through this warehouse as a new beginning.
