Foreign Reserves and FDI Dip

Acting Governor Cleviston Haynes

The Barbadian economy grew by an estimated 1.4% over the first nine months of 2017, as economic growth moderated in the third quarter of the year. Tourism output, which fueled the stronger growth performance over the first half of the year, fell during the third quarter, due to a reduction in the average length-of-stay of visitors and hurricane-related disruptions to tourist arrivals in September.

    “An IMF delegation is supposed to visit Barbados this week to conduct the annual Article IV consultation, during which time this DLP administration was to present “a new version of the Barbados Sustainable Recovery Plan,” perhaps in an effort to convince the IMF the economy is on the “correct path to recovery.”

    It seems the IMF cat will be visiting on this ‘special’ occasion to eyeball the pigeons in the coop to see how many of the clowder will be needed to supervise a new administration in the cleaning up of the decade of financial mess left by the current incompetent administration of pure pigeon poo.

    They will also be looking around for suitable accommodation preferably near to the beach but not too far from the towers in Warrens; all at the expense of the already ‘overtaxed’ owners of the coop about to collapse in the DLP junkyard.
