IMF Report

The IMF was checking up on us here in Grenada the other day. Highlights of their observations:-

despite signs of economic recovery, the economic situation in Grenada remains challenging, both in the near-term and over a longer horizon

and they had

very productive dialogue with Prime Minister Dr. Keith Mitchell and members of his Cabinet

It’s nice to see how the article left out the fact that leaders of the Grenada Chamber of Commerce and the Grenada Trades Union Council had met with the IMF delegation, and asked the delegation to mention to the Prime Minister, that they would really like it if he could return their phone calls. Yes, you read right – the P.M. has literally ignored all requests from the Chamber, the TUC and other private sector organisations to meet face-to-face, since Hurricane Ivan some fifteen months ago. Can you imagine that? Sure, other ministers have ongoing dialogues with the aforementioned organisations, but can you just imagine a P.M. being so…. so…. so.. shortsighted (??) as to basically refuse to meet with some of the major economic players of the country? Particularly in a time like this when you are hoping (one would assume) for their cooperation and participation in the rebuilding process.But then again, very few could say our P.M. possesses a great deal of foresight. More on that soon.*grumble*
