Board Games – part 2

state-boards-logosThe previous article prompted a series of extremely interesting responses, so I will continue this examination of the State Controlled Agencies. That phrase includes State-owned Enterprises (such as UDECOTT, Caribbean Airlines and EFCL) and Statutory Agencies (like WASA, TTEC, CDA, PATT and HDC).Some sharp objections were made to my comparison of the relation between the State, the Government and Citizens to a Company, its Board of Directors and its shareholders. I maintain that this is a valid comparison for us to reflect on the proper roles and responsibilities of the various public officials, but perhaps more importantly, the responsibilities of us citizens.

    This is a conversation/discussion more of us need to have in Barbados as well. Instead our media and general population appear to be comfortable discussing yardfowl politics and partying?. While this unproductive exercise is occurring scarce resources are leaking into the drain and the well being of the country continues to deteriorate.

    Further our interest in statutory corporations should be peaked given the focus of the government in Barbados to engage in some rationalization. BU makes special mention of the BRA (Barbados Revenue Authority) which continue to struggle in its formation.
