The Barbados Prime Minister Mia Mottley has told OECS leaders that its time to stop paying lip service to the idea of an inter-island ferry service.
“It is time that we stop talking about inter-island ferry transportation and do it,” she told the opening of and OECS meeting in Barbados.
“I am aware, that unless we move to the stage where we can facilitate the movement of not just people but vehicles and cargo we will not get the full benefit of the space that we have been honoured to occupy,” she said.
On the question of LIAT, the Barbados prime minister said: “a review of governance structures is absolutely critical if we are to ensure the viability of an airline that is really the lifeblood of this region.”
Mottley was invited to the OECS meeting by the heads even though Barbados is not a member of the grouping.
