    • @Schoolmate, what exactly are you shocked about and why?

      Congratulations to the lady. I am here wishing I too was able to open my international business endeavor in Antigua and Barbuda but sitting here waiting for that license, going on about a year now.

      I am not operating without all needed and appropriate tools. Wish I had some connection in the government to request my application be considered on the merit and decision in a reasonable time base on the merit.

      I wish I had that.
