(Barbados Nation) 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”.
The Member of Parliament who represents St Michael North East also said that nations were built as a result of raising a people.
