No new hiring to staff Blue Economy Unit

St. George MP Dean Jonas

The Cabinet agreed to establish a BLUE ECONOMY Unit, under the Minister responsible for this subject.

Antigua and Barbuda’s territorial seas exceed the 170 square-mile limit of its land surface more than tenfold.

The Blue Economy seeks to maximize this untapped resource by bringing expertise to the Unit which could propose various uses, including fishing of course.

The parties that are to comprise this Unit will be drawn from those who are now employed within the public service so that there will be no additional salaries expense incurred by the Treasury.

  1. This sounds like wisdom, and it’s all in the interest of the People. Very professional.

    • @Conrad the Red:
      You say:Sounds like wisdom.How so? How does one measure wisdom?You are giving high praises.Before the end results are seen.Is that the way you evaluate someone. Territorial Water is usually 12 Nautical Miles from the baseline.

  2. In theory this is OK
    IF the necessary knowledge, technical & business acumen resides within the available public servants that will be utilized;
    that technicians in the Environment Division are absolutely on point regarding review of all ‘schemes’ and stopping any and all further marine environment degradation (Yida project & lack of teeth by Environment Division versus the $ is a case in point);
    that the Minister has the intellectual capacity to rapidly get up to speed in this fast developing arena (sadly his track record on speaking about women regarding Gender Affairs leaves much wanting).

    I note the thrust to monetize our marine environment, which is well & good IF the marine biosphere is not only protected but replenished & rejuvenated so it’s value remains for our great grandchildren.

  3. Now they are finally recognizing the #real #value of REDONDA.
    Again and again, yet again and still again REDONDA must be placed on all Government stationery, contracts, MOU, etc.
    The Nation is a TRI-Island State of, Antigua, Barbuda & REDONDA.

    Tenman, mr. chief of staff in waiting, a who own Redonda?

  4. Another waste of time and money minister here.
