BARBADOS - golf
The anticipated fireworks against the Opposition never materialised as Arthur instead calmly defended the measures he outlined in the Budget to change the island’s export culture.
The new Sandy Lane complex will involve construction of 111 villas over a ten- to 15-year period on 280 acres stretched mainly across the Green Monkey Golf Course.
Sources last night said villas would cost upward of $10 million, including the land. Construction on the first set will not get going until after the Green Monkey, which is already completed, is opened sometime in 2005.
Arthur said Barbados must stop its love-hate relationship with such projects because of the “politics of envy” which caused it to have an anti-developmental approach.
He assured the House that there were some things which Government had to do such as capping land taxes, noting that most of the investment here was coming from Britain where there was such a cap.
“We are not doing this because we want to pass money to white, wealthy people,” he explained, “but because these people come from a culture that is accustomed to a cap on land tax.”
Arthur said Barbados was at an “interesting and delicate stage” but he was not underestimating the balance of payments problem, saying he would not “play with it” or cause any problem in the form of a loss of reserves through the actions of the Government.
“We are putting in place measures to change the export culture, broaden the export base,” he added.
Compliments of the Nation News
BARON. It must have been the richest congaline ever assembled on New YearÕs
Day. Some of the worldÕs wealthiest, guests of the five-star Sandy
Lane Hotel, put their cares aside and mingled with Barbadians while enjoying
great food, drink and an exhibition of some of the islandÕs best
talent. There was fire-eating, tuk band music, stiltwalkers, the Landship,
belly dancers, Mother Sally, and several costumed dancers depicting the
various elements of Crop-Over, as they danced to sweet calypso rhythms
played by backing band Rhapsody. Then guests converged on the dance floor,
formed a congaline and had a ball, as demonstrated by Baron de Rothschild,
who was fascinated by this Bajan dancer. (Picture by Gregory Waldron.)
