Positive signs ahead for Barbados

Regional economist Marla Dukharan says Barbados is on course to record some measure of economic growth this year if the country continues to stick to its fiscal reforms.

In her regional economic outlook for 2020, Dukharan also believes the island may be able to achieve its target of a primary surplus of six per cent of gross domestic product (GDP) this year.

Ms. Dukharan adds that the size of the island’s construction industry has also been smaller than in previous years, and upcoming major projects can help get the sector back to the level where it needs to be to spur further growth.
