“The role of the private sector is to ‘do business’ and drive growth. The role of the government is to provide regulatory/policy and service functions (especially providing a dynamic enabling environment for the private sector). The role of the Trade Unions is to induce harmony between employer and employee to achieve greater productivity for fair compensation; and the role of Civil Society is to support the other social partners by mobilizing volunteers and garnering grant support from benevolent sources.

“But reflecting what an amazing country. I wrote the following to my daughter after my trip to Hong Kong and Singapore. These two places are probably two of the most entrepreneurial places in the world. Singapore in particular is a model of entrepreneurship, enterprise and innovation. That a small country, just a little bigger than Barbados, (277 square miles compared to Barbados’ 166) with 5 million people (Barbados has 280,000 people) no mineral resources, could have a per capita income of US$55,000 is amazing given that in 1965, Singapore had a per capita income of $511. Barbados’ per capita is about $11,000. So Singapore’s per capita is five times that of Barbados. Barbados and Singapore were at the same level 30 years ago. The country is clean, green and orderly. A place that is worth a visit.”

In her own words: “Writing is not something I produce, it’s something that produces a change in both myself and my readers. When I’m writing, I feel energized and an infinite amount of time would pass by without me getting weary. It is my passion, my first love and my reason for being. It is my motivator and healer…it elicits a catharsis as my ‘pen’ captures what we all think about but seldom discuss. This passion has led to the publication of my first book “Thinking out Loud” and my second book “How to Find Yourself and Claim What’s Yours”.
