UPP Creates a Buzz to Support Community Small Businesses

The UPP recognizes that small businesses can play a big role in driving the economy and strengthening community spirit. On Saturday 20th August, members of the United Progressive Party (UPP) will show support for small businesses throughout the constituency of All Saints East and Saint Luke.

A convoy of supporters will depart from Mack Pond in All Saints Village at 12:30pm and end in Old Road Village.

They will make stops along the route to patronize chefs, crafters, farmers and other vendors to help spark business activity in the community.

This initiative dubbed the “Small Business Pull-Up” will be staged in different constituencies each week and will highlight the UPP’s vision for small business development. The UPP believes that when more money is spent in the community, not only does this empower small businesses, but the entire community benefits.

Community markets throughout Antigua and Barbuda are on the rise and the money typically circulates within the community, as small businesses rely on neighboring suppliers for goods and services.

They tend to hire employees from within their communities who will purchase goods and services from other local businesses. So money is fueled back into the community, creating a cycle of support that helps local business to thrive.

“We welcome the support of our small businesses and entrepreneurs in All Saints East and Saint Luke.  It is time to give small businesses a boost, as they struggle on the path of recovery, growth and economic prosperity. The “small business pull-up” will spotlight community businesses and help generate new customers and well needed economic activity, at a time when many are trying to make ends meet.” said Hon. Jamale Pringle, MP for All Saints East and Saint Luke.

  1. Great initiative UPP because the private sector is the engine of our economy. We have to support our small businesses.

  2. UPP is just a poor brand now…all those pawnshop candidates don’t have a clue about government…🙄

    • @Sad… then Antigua sarl sarl cause this current government with all their degrees and hi fautin ways nah ya a clue either

    • @ Sad but True:
      Could you respond to the 26 FAILED ABLP projects?
      What is Gaston’s plan for helping out in these hard times
      What happened to the Economic Recovery Committee

      ABLP is an elitist party. They don’t have respect for people who don’t have degrees.
      Look at what your PM said about KUBLAI. Look at what Dean told Serpent last night.

      Furthermore, the ABLP don’t like black people.

      ABLP is a failed brand

    • @ Sad But True

      IS YOUR NAME SAD SACK?

      YOUR PARTY IS ALL KNOWING AND BRILLIANT AND THEY CANNOT BRING ONE PROJECT OFF THE GROUND……THAT IS WHAT IS SAD, INCLUDING YOU

  3. Too late. The current government has/is already doing this across the entire country including Barbuda. 134+ fetes approved by the government is not just profits for promoters and organizers, but spin-off for CLOTHING STORES, MAKEUP ARTISTS, NAIL TECHS, HAIRDRESSERS, BEAUTY STORES, FOOD VENDORS etc etc

    • @ UPP’S SHERFIELD……….
      EVERYTHING THE UPP DOES, YOU FOLLOW SUIT……YOU ARE DEVOID OF IDEAS, YOU HAVE NO VISION, AND THATS WHY ANTIGUANS ARE SUFFERING SO MUCH.
      NO RELIEF FROM COST OF LIVING, NO STIMULUS.
      ANTIGUA WAS THE ONLY COUNTRY IN THE WORLD THAT DID NOT GIVE ITS PEOPLE A STIMULUS DURING COVID!! WHAT AN AWFUL SHAME.

  4. ENTREPRENEURIAL DEVELOPMENT FUND is available to offer assistance to aspiring Entrepreneurs to help make their dream a reality.

    TEACH YOU HOW TO FISH!

    • ANSWER THIS QUESTION: WHY IS THE ENTREORENEURIAL DEVELOPMENT FUND A FAILURE?
      How many people have been successful using this fund.
      The EDF is as successful as the Economic Recovery Committee.
      ANYTHING GASTON TOUCH -MASH-UP

      • @ JUST SAYING

        ABLP is a joke: 26 failed projects.
