Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley will officially launch Vision 2020: We Gatherin’ in the courtyard of Parliament Friday evening.
The 12-month global celebration of Barbadian excellence is intended to signal a recommitment to the country’s successful future and core values that have defined us as a people.
2020 has been designated as the year for Barbadians and those who love this country to come home, reconnect with family and friends, and invest in the rebuilding and development of Barbados.
The initiative will begin in the north of the island in January 2020, and move southward every month, culminating in St. Michael in November.
The grand climax takes place in December with a Christmas extravaganza for Barbadians at home and abroad.
Hundreds of Barbadians are expected to converge in Bridgetown for the launch and two screens will be set up so members of the public can view the ceremony on Broad Street or by the Palmetto Square Market.
