Opposition Leader Jamale Pringle says the United Progressive Party (UPP) is sympathetic to the plight in which many small businesses have found themselves since the pandemic, and he is crediting the Party’s Political Leader, Harold Lovell, for coming up with the “Small Business Caravan” initiative.
Members of the Party will be going through the All Saints and St. Luke constituency on Saturday, August 20, supporting as many small businesses as possible as a contribution to their economic activity.
If these enterprises are to remain operational and successful, Pringle says, the Party has decided it must lend support in whatever way possible.
Pringle says the caravan will provide an opportunity for constituents to interact with him, as well as with the other UPP Candidates.
This is also a step to a more people-inclusive system, he says, which he is promoting as a better way of running government.
The Opposition Leader, who is also the UPP Candidate for All Saints East and St. Luke, is echoing the widely held sentiment that the Browne Administration does not have the business sector – especially micro businesses – at heart.
Accordingly, Pringle says the Party will be announcing some policies that he anticipates will be well received by the sector.
Pringle says that other persons who are interested in supporting the initiative can also come out to be a part of it.
