Barbados Port Inc. (BPI) today announced that the renovations to the Lewis/Wickham Boardwalk is completed, and that boat users and pedestrians can safely resume use of the waterway and walkway between the Chamberlain Lift Bridge and the traffic lights by Chefette Restaurant.
As we celebrate 47 years of Independence, this is a time to review the past and look to the future. This has been a strategic policy of the Bridgetown Port from inception.
The Port is a major port of entry for 90% of the goods used in the manufacturing and retail sectors in Barbados. A major part of its responsibility has been dedicated to supporting businesses in the import/export trade, a job that it carries out without any government subsidies, unlike the majority of ports in the region.
The Port Management Association of the Caribbean (PMAC) recognized ‘the outstanding service rendered’ by past Chairman, Everton Walters, CBE, at its fifteenth Annual General Meeting last weekend at the Courtyard by Marriott.
The designation of Honorary Member was also conferred on Walters, who served PMAC as Chairman from 2003 to 2011. A graduate of the Universities of the West Indies and Wales, he majored in Economic and Maritime Studies, respectively.
