Governor General Sir Rodney Williams says the Cabinet will move ahead with recommendations to make Willoughby Bay into a city.
He told the Throne Speech that the 200-page Report of the ERC—entitled: ONE VISION ONE PURPOSE ONE NATION—that has emerged from this national think-tank, is remarkable for its clarity and vision; it serves as a blueprint to guide my Government.
He said: “the Cabinet of Antigua and Barbuda—whose members served as Chairpersons of the ERC’s various sub-committees—has been reliant upon ERC guidelines that inform and influence the Cabinet’s weekly, policy-making meetings.
My Government’s plan for Willoughby Bay, growing out of the ERC proposals, will result in the creation of a new city in Antigua.
It is remarkable in its ambition.”
