The Grenville Phillips Column – The End Game, Part 2 – Choking on Worms

Industries in developed countries normally mature until they are internationally competitive.  When they are ready to expand beyond their national borders, they ask their Governments to negotiate trade agreements to legally exploit the less developed markets of other nations.

Barbados was consistently given the same strategic economic advice from the Inter-American Development Bank and others since at least 1989 (30 years ago).  It was for the Government to improve the management of public services, and to facilitate the international competitiveness of the private sector.

The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is a trade agreement between the USA, Canada and Mexico.  In 2001, it was being expanded to include Central and South America, and the Caribbean.  This expanded agreement was called the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA).

In March 2002, The Ministry of Economic Development invited private sector leaders, who were already internationally competitive, to participate in a Strategic Planning Working Group.  We were to help prepare Barbados’ service industries to successfully compete in an FTAA market.  It is critically important to understand that trade agreements are negotiated to give a country’s industries a competitive trade advantage.

My assigned responsibility was to develop an action plan to prepare the professional services sector to be internationally competitive.  I chaired a committee comprising leaders of 25 professional associations in Barbados.  These included: accountants, lawyers, financial advisors, doctors, podiatrists, therapists, dentists, nurses, veterinarians, pharmacists, engineers, architects, surveyors, estate agents, valuers, planners, journalists, musicians, composers and publishers, shippers, human resource practitioners, and office professionals.

The Committee tried to offer services in the USA, Canada and Mexico, to identify the barriers that our professionals would likely face.  Since each state of the US and each province of Canada had different regulations, we tried to offer our services in the US states of New York and California, and in the Canadian Provinces of Ontario and Vancouver.

We collectively donated approximately $0.5M of our time and prepared a comprehensive report.  That report contained detailed strategies and actions that individuals and associations should pursue to allow Barbadian businesses to become internationally competitive.  It also included the critical actions that the Government needed to complete to facilitate economic growth in the services sector.

The plan worked exactly as designed for those who chose to implement it.  I led from the front by becoming the first person to qualify as a Chartered Structural Engineer in 15 years in Barbados.  I then trained others to successfully achieve the same international qualification.

Our firm became the first service company in the Caribbean to attain the ISO 9001 quality management standard, and won the BIDC’s Exceptional Quality award.  I subsequently worked on projects worth over $500,000,000 over the next 5 years, and earned foreign currency in 10 Caribbean countries.

The plan has been continuously improved to the point where if it is followed, it is difficult to lose even if one tried.  For several years, over 80% of my earnings were in foreign currency.  It was principally due to that plan that I was the 2014 winner of the National Innovation Competition, and president of Walbrent College.

Later in 2002, the FTAA negotiations started to brake-down, due mainly to the US’ unwillingness to stop subsiding their agricultural industry.  The election of several anti-US leaders in Central and South America would later make negotiations challenging.

With the FTAA off the ‘front burner’, the Government prioritised the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME), which is a trade agreement between developing markets in the Caribbean.  However, for whatever reason, neither the BLP nor DLP administrations would implement the critical actions to facilitate the economic growth of the sector.

In September 2002, European businesses wanted to exploit developing Caribbean markets.  Caribbean countries were encouraged to participate in the Economic Partnership Agreement.  Knowing our politicians, the Europeans dangled ‘Aid for Trade’ hook-worms to guarantee our participation.

Unfortunately for us, their eyes opened wide – too wide to see the concealed hooks.  With indebted economies, they could not resist the worms, and they locked our unprepared children into the End Game.  It is, in my opinion, the worst trade agreement since our fore-parents were sold for trinkets over one century ago.  To be continued next week.

Grenville Phillips II is a Chartered Structural Engineer and President of Solutions Barbados.  He can be reached at NextParty246@gmail.com

    As a self proclaimed pimple with meaningless qualifications stuck in perpetual motion saying nothing

    Look how, as opposed to comments leveled at the site’s dissenters, he spends longgggg paragraphs with detailed data seeking to derail points being made about their observations of fiduciary infelicities and Mugabe teifing.

    Here all he does is mek sport at the jokester Grenville whose head is so far up his own ass he resembles the Egyptian symbol of eternity ie the snake eating its own tail.

  • Hi David:

    Following the General Election, a few left us. Some felt that one try was enough, some wanted to focus on their businesses and return later, and others chose to leave because they no longer wanted the accountability of Contract, which is mandatory given the accusations of gross corruption among politicians (any SB member who accepted a bribe would go bankrupt – with 100% of the fine going to charities).

    We still have the most declared candidates after the BLP, and will shortly evaluate a few more to bring us up to 20. With the expected return of 5 of our previous candidates, we are still looking for 5 willing and competent persons.

    Following our AGM next month, I can share more.

    I do not consider Grenville to be a “tarnished item” as you put it. I think he is strongest when he is talking about things about which he has deep knowledge… that is why the piece above is fundamentally coherent and gives a useful historical context to international trade in services. I have vociferously differed with him on questions of domestic fiscal policy… I believe it was because he was being given bad advice by Mr. Scott Weatherhead, who apart from having no clue about fiscal or economic policy, has a questionable ethical reputation I’m told. Mr. Weatherhead has left Solutions Barbados to be part of Atherley’s official opposition team… I am happy for Grenville that he is rid of that influence, but I fear for Bishop Atherley.

    The fat is this, a Third Party Movement is extremely difficult to achieve but why lie Peter?

    Look at you! A man who understands deliverables, and how to motivate at the community level, where it counts WHY WOULD HE THEN LIE TO YOU?

    If I were to start a political party now i would say to my colleagues, Here is what I do, I deliver the organic backbone which permits you to get your branding out there to the average man.

    This is what is needed to provide this deliverable and here is an example of tht deliverable.

    I am not a lawyer but i do know what lawyers have done and continue to do AND WHAT WOULD BE A ROUTE TO MOTIVATE AN AUDIENCE if one were to seek to secure their vote.

    My point is this, he IS NOT A LEADER, and he needs to understand that. It is obvious that his was not the type of personality behind which people would coalesce.

    So you learn from those mistakes, You come clean and you say to the public, I was wrong But I am here still and I really need your support.

    These are my people, and here are their CVs and deliverables.

    The problem as i see it is that very few of his people HAVE DELIVERABLES and that is the very same thing that happened with the DLP and what has happened with Mugabe

    DELIVERABLES PETER DELIVERABLES!

    Before I leave let me give you this secret

    There is no law anywhere in the world that can stop that product that i launched on his website NONE!!

    It has Mugabe and all of them scrambling with tools to block and blacklist IPs etc but that is impossible because ***

  • @ Freedom Crier,

    All over the world we expect certain forms of behaviour from professional people, that is why people look up to them. Their education, training and status in society, for which they are highly rewarded, set them aside.
    It is also why they have regulatory bodies to police their public behaviour. I am surprised, and disappointed, that anonymous people who come on BU claiming to be ‘professionals’ can behave in the most foul way and their professional bodies do not make any attempt to identify them, or more, to suspend or expel them. Also, given the vulgarity, the law enforcement agencies sit idly by and allow this.
    But what do you expect when during the last general election campaign Kerrie Symmonds talked on a public platform about horning people. Why discuss ideas when smut – from mostly aged people – can do. It is a cheap laugh.

    ONE SUNDAY NIGHT IN DECEMBER 1976 I WAS WALKING WITH MY WIFE ALONG A PATH NEAR PAPINE IN KINGSTON JAMAICA THAT I HAD OFTEN TRAVERSED EARLY IN THE MORNINGS COMING FROM HOSPITAL, WHEN SUDDENLY TWO GUN MEN APPEARED

    THEY TOOK NOTHING FROM US, NOTHING! NOR DID THEY HURT US IN ANY WAY

    GUESS WHAT? THAT SAME MORNING I HAD COMMENTED ON 2 TIMOTHY 4:18 BELOW
    And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom: to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

    I CAN LIST THE SEVERAL TIMES THAT HE HAS INDEED DELIVERED ME FROM EVIL WORKS

    I CONSIDER NOT BEING IN BARBADOS FOR THE LAST 16 YEARS AN EXAMPLE OF SUCH DELIVERANCE

    FC will continue to read your Articles for the high level of Strategic Planning you have exposed us here to see. You have given me hope that they are people in Barbados that can operate at the level that you are Exhibiting.

    I look forward with Anticipation to Part Two. It is Clear that you receive Inspiration, God Bless.

    In an effort to ensure that retrenched public officers are given all possible assistance, Government has established the Household Mitigation Unit, and its staff is hard at work.

    This disclosure has come from Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley, who said the Unit is playing an important role in “minimizing the social and psychological impact of the retrenchment exercise on affected individuals and households by taking proactive steps to reduce potential fallout”.

    Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley, instead of talking a whole set of jobby bout “a Unit playing an important role in her reign of terror on DLP civil servants should proactively seek to correct this problem by doing one thing.

    Fire 16 of the 30 ministers dat zero got in the House of Assembly drawing down $17,000 a month for doing FAQ all!

    That would free up over $.5 million a month that would vo a long way in “minimizing the social and psychological impact of the retrenchment exercise on affected individuals”.

    Right now it is her 30 RH ministers who are suffering households by taking dollars out of circulation for poor people and is central to the sufferation islandwide.

  • Mr. Grenville Phillips it is notable that within your Character are the attributes of leadership as your tract record demonstrates. Since 2002, you were assigned the responsibility to develop an action plan to prepare the professional services sector to be internationally that was critically important to understand that trade agreements are negotiated to give a country’s industries a Competitive Trade Advantage.

    You oversaw a committee of over 25 Professional Associations in Barbados who Collectively Volunteered a Considerable Value of their time to the tune of approximately $0.5M to develop a report that “detailed strategies and actions that individuals and associations should pursue to allow Barbadian businesses to become internationally competitive.

    You blazed the Trail in this effort by becoming by becoming the first person to qualify as a Chartered Structural Engineer in 15 years in Barbados. And you did not stop there you then trained others to successfully achieve the same international qualification.

    The rest of the Article speaks of the Seeds Planted and the Harvest reaped as you worked on projects worth over $500,000,000 and earned foreign currency in 10 Caribbean countries and was awarded for your efforts as the first service company in the Caribbean to attain the ISO 9001 quality management standard, winning the BIDC’s Exceptional Quality award.

    The plan was so successful that in 2014 you were the forerunner of the National Innovation Competition, and president of Walbrent College.

    The break down came as the B & D Governments failed implement the critical actions to facilitate the economic growth of the sector. And that is where the Exploiters stepped in dangling ‘Aid for Trade’ hook-worms to guarantee our participation. Sounds like the Fisheries Division of the EU. As you well know the Fishermen always Control the Fish, Hook Line and Sinker. Look they have recently Blacklisted Barbados

    Please Note…

    ‘On 12 March, the Council of the 28-nations European Union (EU) placed 15 small territories on a list of what it calls “non-cooperative jurisdictions”. What the EC considers these territories to be “non-cooperative” about reveals the raw exercise of power by the strong over the weak. In this case, the firm intention of the EU is to impose its tax policies upon other nations through strong-arming’ and that includes Barbados.’

    The EU is an UN-elected Bureaucratic Body dictating to the Sovereign States within the EU their World View. The EU is in danger of being broken up and with the Advent of BREXIT they are looking for ways to get more money. They are Jealous that by the International Rules that were created by the Big Countries that some small States and that include Barbados have Out Manoeuvred these Big State Blocks in getting Revenue that the EU does Not Control.

    So please let’s put the Picture into Perspective if the EU can shut down the small states by labelling them Un-corporative, their hope is that these Companies HQ will move back to Europe.

    The opposition that you experience is to be expected and the Adversary is doing his part to keep your light from shining that could illuminate our Country Barbados and if given the chance to implement your Policies with your Foresight, could indeed be a Healing Balm…

    Praying that you voice will continue to be heard Sir and that many will awaken!!

    The current administration is finally waking up to what they and the DLP have done to the next generation with the unilateral EU decision to blacklist us. Our children are not being prepared to compete in an EPA market. Meanwhile, we are tearing each-other apart like lunatics, being orchestrated by judas-type characters for purely politically partisan reasons.

    Then have the audacity and ignorance to call Grenville the writer of this article a tarnished individual who needs to bring evidence to support.

    A next one?

    De ole man must be doing something good!

    De ole man’s fan club members is increasing and the plan is working splendidly.

    Heheheheh

    Step 1: go to Barbados Underground and click on “Your Gravatar”. Create the most “confrontational gravatar” on BU Google and post that. It is best to focus on the target of your campaign using subliminal imagery.

    Step 2: monitor your imagery on your Barbados Underground fan page.

    From time to time undercover agents may highjack your gravatar.

    This is expected IF THE SITE IS ANTI YOUR MESSAGE you can expect this type of behaviour.

    Step 3: once you identify your fans euphemism for enemies identify what words or actions get them riled the most.

    Start off with simple words like thief an liar but eventually introduce words that get them to curse and monitor the words that get them to respond quickly

    Words like @poochlickers and other terms that create images that your fans may not like.

    Sometimes lumping some fans into groups like “sheeple” can really get some factions very angry.

    Create profiles on your internet protagonists so that you know what times their shift begins

    Remember that memes depicting certain of them are excellent tools in incense them.

    Step 4: your written content can vary from comedy, to drivel but ultimately start dropping your main truths.

    At first people WILL NOT RESPOND but you will know when your posts are successful when

    the photo count on your video or Other 3rd Party page is equal to the readership on the Blog

    step 5: Start integrating “verified and validating” media stories to your materials which link all your messages

    Wait and see who joins the fray seeking to insult you

    Expect that count to reach about 50 fervent fans sent by your tango, Mugabe who will submit one pattern of attack.

    Should you speak out about anyone during your campaign e.g. Grenville Phillips you must expect a synchronization in your fan club messages I.e. fraud like MyMoney is a fraud, go fund me for other purposes like Bajan Bonds get siphoned off for other purposes, firebombing hoax like Covensnt of Hope is a hoax which wunna bought into AND SLOWLY LEARNING HOW WUNNA LIGHT BILL, water bill and garbage collection bills at wunna home get “firebombed” too
