The Prime Minister of Barbados, Mia Mottley extended wishes to all the residents of the nation on the occasion of Christmas.

She stated that there’s no time of the year that is quite like this one. Even the atmosphere feels different and we love it when we wake up in these December mornings and feel the difference in the breeze.

While highlighting the stress buster of lives, she stated that Barbadians and people all over the world, including her are taking relief from the stresses and harsh challenges of daily life so that they are able to celebrate the birth of lord Jesus Christ.

PM Mottley, while shedding light on the values noted, “We are again reminded of what is truly important – the building of relationships, the love of friends and family, the value of the human person, extending kindness to strangers, Joy and the simple things of life, the triumph of the human spirit over adversity and the hope for the future which we find in faith.”

She added such enduring values assume greater importance this year as they have come to a multitude of grips of conflicts and challenges that have tested the resilience of the nation.

Pointing towards the difficulties, PM Mottley stated that the ravage of the climate crisis requires high capital costs, but the resources available are inadequate. The difficulties with the supply chains and the economy still trying to recover from the blows of Covid – 19 pandemic have led to global fears and uncertainty.

It was also mentioned that in the Caribbean, their zone of peace appeared to be under threat, whether local, regional or international. Violence and disputes of any kind are unwelcomed and force their attention away from the development objectives as well as the safety, security and prosperity that people deserve.

“Despite the difficulties of 2023, I genuinely believe that the future remains bright. The incidence of serious crimes has been lowered. Several major capital projects are coming on stream, new opportunities are opening up and the country remains united. The sacrifices we have made and the work we have been doing as government and citizens are beginning to yield fruit”, said PM Mia Amor Mottley.

She added that the Government of Barbados will continue to put the citizens as their first priority. Working with every sector, and every political party to reach this brighter future together. They will continue to share both the burden and benefits.
