Prime Minister, Dr the Right Honourable Keith Mitchell is optimistic about continued growth prospects for Grenada.
In his New Year’s Message, Dr Mitchell said, “As we welcome the new year, it is with great anticipation for what’s to come. Undoubtedly, there are many opportunities ahead.” Referring specifically to the construction sector, Dr Mitchell noted that many private sector projects are scheduled to get underway this year.
Dr Mitchell, who is also the Minister of Finance, said, “This unparalleled level of economic investment by the private sector reveals a very high and increasing level of investor confidence in the local economy and its management, which augurs well for the future development of our country.”
The Prime Minister is of the view that government alone cannot foster sustainable development and he cited a need for a solid partnership with the private sector and workers.
He noted that while the roles of government and the private sector are separate, they are also complementary, in that government creates the enabling environment while real growth must be propelled by activity in the private sector.
The Prime Minister further stated that continued private sector confidence and economic growth can only thrive in a prevailing atmosphere of industrial stability.
