The Antigua Barbuda Labour Party launched its 2018 manifesto this morning as the nation heads into the general elections set for March 21.
In the 64-page document entitled “Vision 2023 and beyond,” The Gaston Browne led-ABLP, which is seeking a second consecutive term in office, promises to reduce Corporate Tax to 20 percent.
