The Prime Minister has been sending strong signals before and after the last general election that he intends to dismantle the old structures which have existed in our distribution and retail sectors, and which historically have been producing high prices for commodities. This situation has become untenable in the prevailing turbulent economic conditions.
Last weekend Leader of the Opposition Mia Mottley advised Barbadians that Cost-U-Less (a buyers club) is currently doing due diligence on Barbados. Mia Mottley was not complimentary about the move and hinted that the reputation of Cost-U-Less was suspect and queried how the entry of such a company might affect jobs who currently work as middlemen etcetera.This is coming from a person who held a senior position in the last government that selected 3S Barbados to do a multi-million dollar contract which has a very murky reputation.
This is an excellent opportunity for the consumer advocates in Barbados to show their mettle. The newly formed Barbados Consumer Watch and others should by their actions provide information to the public to stimulate healthy discussion. We have seen what competition has done in the telecommunications sector to a point. Can the entry of Cost-U-Less to the same?
