PLP hail job summit as success
The Progressive Labour Party has pledged further town hall meetings after a successful jobs summit last night.
The party’s ‘Job Summit 2017: Diversity Inclusion and Opportunity’, was hailed as a success by Walter Roban, the deputy Opposition leader, who said: “With Bermudian jobs continuing to be lost while jobs for non-Bermudians are the only category experiencing growth, it is clear that Bermudians are looking for ideas and solutions that will get our people back to work, build more businesses and create a more inclusive Bermuda.
“These series of town halls hosted by the PLP serve to highlight our Vision 2025 for Jobs and Growth while tapping into the expertise and intellect of the wider community to highlight the ways we can improve the lives of average Bermudians.
“We appreciate the presentations made by each our panellists and the public can be assured that the PLP will be hosting more events of this nature in the future.”
Last night’s summit featured a panel including Myra Virgil, Barclay Simmons, Cordell Riley and Diallo Rabain, the Shadow Minister for Environment and Workforce Development.
