OECS hails Browne victory as a vote of optimism

7
OECS Director General Dr. Didacus Jules is describing the recent Antigua Barbuda Labour Party victory as a vote for optimism and continuity in the direction the nation was heading.“We commend Prime Minister Browne and the ABLP for their steady hand in guiding Antigua and Barbuda through the defining regional challenges of our time including the recent devastating hurricanes to tepid economic growth,” said Dr. Jules.

‘The tremendous social and economic progress made by the ABLP under Prime Minister Browne is to be commended and demonstrates the vision and resilience of the Government’s manifesto and the universal principals it holds dear – inclusiveness, good governance, accountability and transparency.

“The Commission of the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States will continue to work tirelessly, side by side with the Government of Antigua and Barbuda to help the nation fulfill its development objectives in new and innovate ways we are able to achieve as a regional body.

“This includes, for example, working to harness global expertise and resources to ensure Antigua and Barbuda remains resilient in the face of future extreme weather events.

“On behalf of the staff of the OECS Commission we offer our heartfelt congratulations to Prime Minister Browne and the Government for their next term of Government,” said Dr. Jules.

  1. Economic progress is fine but what social progress have occurred since the ABLP came into office. I still see the slum at Perry Bay. I have not seen a decrease in the beggers in st John’s and though point has nice roads the people in those areas have not climbed any higher in their social standings. So what are they talking about social progress?

    • You will not see anything,it is obvious your eyes are all Blue& Yellow.. You may not see anything,but i am pretty sure you felt the blows last Wednesday . Are u DUN..

  2. Where are the comments?Where are those that say nothing was done for the past 4years? Would not surprise me if some nasty words are thrown at the Director General..

  3. “This includes, for example, working to harness global expertise and resources to ensure Antigua and Barbuda remains resilient in the face of future extreme weather events.’…

    Okay Director sir, you’ve highlighted ‘The tremendous social and economic progress made by the ABLP under Prime Minister Browne is to be commended and demonstrates the vision and resilience of the Government’s manifesto and the universal principals it holds dear – inclusiveness, good governance, accountability and transparency.’.. I would have loved if you had elaborated as to the areas of social progress and economic development… As a visitor to these shores I find the cost of living to be ridiculously high, electricity and fuel prices are exorbitant…

    In all you’ve stated you have only used an example of providing expertise to assist in dealing with the weather systems the region has been experiencing recently.. “This includes, for example, working to harness global expertise and resources to ensure Antigua and Barbuda remains resilient in the face of future extreme weather events.’ Where’s the offer of assistance to support a specific social program or economic development policy…

    While folks have a democratic right to support any party of choice can’t the bar be raised in terms of the discourse and call out right or wrong… spent make you less of a supporter… as someone impartial, having read the article my thoughts were hmmmm Mr. Director, you’re political correctness definitely can’t be questioned… but I need substance to the optimism……

    And there’s no colour for me but BLACK, WHITE and hues if GREY…

    Can we discuss

  4. @ Miss Janice Samuel- High cost of living isnt a problem for Just Antigua-its a problem for the entire Region.FYI- the cost of living escalated to the level it is now,under the former UPP administration with the implementation of the ABST. Is that your only concern? Lately i have been noticing that although the Cost of living is so high,the hugh baskets in Epicurean have been scarce at times,I have not seen vehicles stopping in the middle of traffic,because they ran out of fuel,having to get a bottle from the back of the vehicle to get some gas to re-fuel,that i saw on a regular basis a few years back. I think your comment is more politically directed than the director’s whether you are a visitor or a national,your comment is bias. Please just face the facts that the government has performed and will continue to do so,irrespective of naysayers and hypocrites like you.If you are just a visitor,then mind your business.
