The Democratic Labour Party (DLP) is set on making Barbados work but with realistic policies.
Last night during their manifesto launch in the Oistins car park, in Christ Church, Minister of Sports, Youth and Culture Stephen Lashley said that the Party will continue along the path that they have already started on and will be achieving their goals of youth employment and increased entrepreneurial opportunities with goals which can be attained.
“We are working for you but we are doing so with realistic policies. We are ensuring that we can take our young people along,” he said. “We are not going to keep our young people on the blocks but we are going to employ them.
“We are not going to keep them in a state of dependency but we are going to go beyond that. We are simply moving along a path that our young people can be captivated by forthright and innovative policies. We are going to make entrepreneurs of them,” he added.
As he referenced the manifesto, Lashley added that a new public sector reform programme will create a more vibrant and opportunistic platform for young people.
“We are going to digitize the entire record of the public service to bolster efficiency and to create employment for young people, so as to increase the ease of doing business in Barbados,” Lashley revealed to a crowd of thousands of supporters.
