Candidates visit Switcha Bahamas, discuss the Party’s comprehensive plan to expand manufacturing and create new jobs.
The Progressive Liberal Party launched its road trip on Tuesday to promote its comprehensive Economic Plan to kickstart an economic recovery with immediate relief now and a plan to create jobs and build a stronger and more inclusive economy.
Party candidates Leslia Brice (Seabreeze), Senator Dr. Michael Darville (Tall Pines), and Leonardo Lightbourne (North Andros and Berry Islands) visited Mervin Sweeting’s Switcha Bahamas manufacturing plant in Industrial Park Gladstone to highlight critical aspects of the PLP’s Economic Plan to expand manufacturing and create new jobs.
In his remarks, Senator Darville focused on the importance of the PLP embracing the light industries and encouraged Bahamians at large to embrace the opportunities of entrepreneurship.
“We intend to increase access to financing for small and medium-sized businesses in all sectors, prioritizing manufacturing as a critical element for investment and growth,” said Senator Darville.
Underscoring the PLP’s primary focus to empower Bahamian entrepreneurs, Leslia Brice, the party’s candidate for Seabreeze, reiterated the PLP’s plan to invest 250 million dollars over five years to fund Bahamian businesses.
Leonard Lightbourne, candidate for North Andros & The Berry Islands, mentioned “the party’s commitment to invest heavily in training and educational opportunities, to ensure that Bahamians can benefit from employment opportunities that will arise from the growth of new and existing industries.”
The Progressive Liberal Party’s Economic plan entails a comprehensive approach to expanding manufacturing by providing tax incentives, historic investments, and mobilizing the Bahamian people’s talent.
The PLP’s Economic Plan road trip will continue in the coming weeks with events all over the country, highlighting ideas and opportunities in many industries.
Next up: Wednesday at 8pm. The PLP will live stream an Economic Roundtable featuring Anthony Ferguson and Gowon Bowe on Facebook.
Thursday at 10am. The PLP will host an event outside Gambier House with Easy Car to highlight renewable energy investment and job creation in that industry.
