Manufacturing and Trade Unions can help each other, which in turn boosts Barbados

The Chair of the Barbados Manufacturers’ Association says local companies need to stop outsourcing if their firms are to thrive and if they do, this in turn keeps the relevancy of trade unions across the country…

Jason Sambrano, managing director of Pinnacle Feeds in his capacity as chairman of the BMA addressed stakeholders and reporters at Maxor Great House for the launch of BMEX 2017.

He observed there is still a trend where Barbadians feel because a process or product is imported it is naturally superior, however this is only an immediate view – if one carefully considers the ramifications of such a choice then it is no wonder how some unions here are uncertain as their relevancy going forward;-

Mr Sambrano added if entrepreneurism is to truly take root in this country, it is only natural some form of manufacturing would be critical to that enterprise’s success;-

The event was expertly catered by John Nurse who had samples of pork-based souse and saltfish-based buljol for patrons, while noted bartender Jamal Bowen provided guests with a taste of Clayton’s new product Kola Bitters as a foreshadowing of the expo, which starts June 2nd and concludes by June 5th at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre on Two Mile Hill.
