Restaurant sector hopes for fresh approach
The Islands restaurant sector yesterday said they would be looking to the new OBA Government to bring a fresh approach to business.
Island Restaurant Group president and Chamber of Commerce divisional chair Philip Barnett said they were hopeful OBA will work to allow business to do what it does best and create jobs and wealth for all Bermudians by enacting business-friendly policies.
The restaurant sector has been particularly hard hit by the continually worsening recession, and we are aware of many of our divisions members literally hanging on by their fingertips, Mr Barnett said.
The truth is, one of the major drivers of enabling Bermuda Inc to shrug off the stifling cloak of recession, will be business owners hope and trust that things can and will get better, allowing them to deploy capital on new endeavours, creating jobs and new opportunities for all Bermudians.
Mr Barnett continued: We congratulate the OBA on their hard fought win, and our hope for Bermuda is that all residents now come together in the hard battle we have ahead: to steer Bermuda back to prosperity and opportunity for all.
Engaged labour, commitment to excellence, and aspiring to be the best we can be in an incredibly competitive global economy, will be what is needed, and we look forward to the OBA bringing a fresh approach in their upcoming term in governance.
