Barbados Port Incorporated hands over keys for Pile Bay facility to St Michael North West MP

Neil Rowe, Parliamentary representative of St Michael North West, expressed gratitude how the Ministry of Maritime Affairs and the Blue Economy coordinated with the Barbados Port Incorporated to establish a temporary booth in Pile Bay, where vendors and fisherfolk can still operate as renovations apply to the older complex.

Breaking ground for the ceremony at Pile Bay was <strong>Kirk Humphrey</strong>, Minister of Maritime Affairs and the Blue Economy who told media how during this year's earlier Lockdown for the Novel Coronavirus pandemic, one of his concerns was to ensure fisherfolk could still ply their trade as feeding Barbadians and their communities was crucial at such a challenging time.
