    at the end of the day by barbados and trinidad doing what they are doing ,it is helps strengthen ties with those countreis and in this day and age if you can helpa country out(espically one like china, and we should all have a good idea in how china influences the world cause with themm hmmmm) anyway ithelps build a relationship between the two countries and if anything other countries in the caribbean should do the same and maybe..just maybe one day import and export free between each other and have stronger ties..do something now to help the future in the country

    I totally agree with this....the government cannot tell a private entity who to hire.......although it can limit the number of permits that are given out....in the end its about getting the work done...and if Barbados plays hard ball the project might not be able to get the required labour regionally.

    If u are talking about China State funded projects now that is another story,.....using Chinese labour is a condition of utilizing their grant resources....and it aint only de Chinese that have that stipulation.


    in addtion I think alot of people are really aware of what is really happening in the region....right now the regional construction market is hot....and as a result contractors and sending in rediculously high bids......in Barbados we postponed a number of projects till after World Cup hoping things will cool down....but that is not going to happen for a while.....

    alot of people have no idea the size of Barbados' public sector programme...it has well over 50 active projects and many more in planning......and that does not include what the private sector is doing..

    I do agree that the whole issue of foreign labour needs to be looked at...but its needs to be done inna holistic manner, which appreciates the local interest as well as all the various multi lateral and bi-lateral agreements entered into.
    We going from Sun til Sun.......
