Opposition Leader on Budget: “Economic Transformation and Poverty Reduction Fail”

Moses “Shyne” Barrow

The Opposition Leader also touched on issues pertaining to the cost of goods, employment, and foreign direct investments. And, it may come as no surprise to you that, in Barrow’s view, the Briceño Administration has been failing in all these areas.


Moses “Shyne” Barrow, Leader of the Opposition

“Look at the record of this government for the past two years four months it is obvious there is no plan no Plan Belize, no economic development, just scrape and tek. My time fih eat. No fifty thousand jobs, no ten thousand houses, write that off, Belizean people write that off, it is not going to happen under this administration. No investment friendly climate, just drunken arrogance to Waterloo, and Vulcan, and Stake Bank and people that want to come and create employment. Madam Speaker, but I can assure the Belizean people that as Prime Minister I will find solutions. If you look at the Briceño Administration’s medium term fiscal plan as outlined in his budget speech, while some of the CEOs have, I must concede, have demonstrated a willingness to accept the shortcomings of their respective ministries, they have accepted that. They have even said it at the medium term strategy sessions I have attended and I have seen they want to work towards improvement Madam Speaker, but the Prime Minister in his trademark arrogance, Barrowgance, you guys have redefined the term, in his bregin posture, refuse to accept his government has done nothing in the last two years four months Madam Speaker, economic transformation fail, poverty reduction fail.”
