The way forward for Barbuda


The Barbuda Council is making sure it is not ignored in the plans for rebuilding the island which was devastated by hurricane Irma last September.

Wade Burton, Chairman of the Council, told OBSERVER media that the council will be part of the committee overseeing the revitalisation of the island’s various sectors.

“We met with the finance ministry and the Caribbean Development Bank (CBD); it’s about plotting the way forward for Barbuda. The CDB has received monies, including a grant from the Canadian government, to develop certain areas in Barbuda,” Burton explained.

He said that roughly $31 million will be used to rebuild certain sectors such as agriculture and roads.
