Representative for Northern Grenadines the Honourable Dr. Godwin Friday last evening on the NDP night time program said, that the future is our young people and they are looking forward for a job in this country.
He noted that there was nothing in the last budget about creating jobs and added, that senator Francis said in the debate that the budget was not about creating jobs.
A concerned Friday said the young people have to be concern about what the future is about, in this country. He advised that they must not feel powerless, but must continue to push their representatives and care takers in their area, and demand from the government that they must be about creating jobs and not about creating flagship projects for this administration.
He said there’s a lot of talk about airport project, paving of the run way etc; and plane loads of Cubans coming from Cuba to work on the airport, but question about the people here in SVG. Do they have the skills to do the job and can’t they be trained when there is a high rate of unemployment here.
Friday explained that the Northern Grenadines is no different to mainland, they are finding it very difficult, but most of the people are self employed. They are fishermen who work on the sea.
Friday further comment saying, Millions are being spent on building fisheries centre, the most expensive being in Owia and noted that nothing has been done to integrate it in our economy.
He said “we just can’t have a big project of concrete and steel sitting like some artefacts’ to admire, but was supposed to function as an economic entity, that create opportunities in the community or in the country on a whole”.
