A Government Minister has said that the time has come to turn the manufacturing sector towards a path of growth.
This sector has made a meaningful contribution to the economic and social development of this nation, but in the last few decades it has confronted challenges which have caused the closure of businesses.
Minister of Industry, International Business, Commerce and Small Business Development, Donville Inniss, told those attending the manufacturing symposium put on by his Ministry at the Savannah Hotel yesterday that players in this sector need financial, technical and moral support.
“Far too often, those in our society with the most creative minds are daunted by the lack of moral support, lack of financial assistance and lack of technical assistance and I invite you to find ways today in which we can put an end to that as well,” he said.
