    I hear on the grapevine that the previous M.D. was let go without much ado not so long ago but cannot remember any official announcement of that. The silence about that leaves us to speculate about his departure. Why did he leave, was he “invited” to leave, did he leave under a cloud, was his departure with mutual consent. I don’t know, something fishy about that whole thing.

      I suspect he wasn’t in agreement to sign off some more wash machines. I was surprised that he stayed for so long. He isn’t a bad guy.

    Things must going well in Dominica to advertise simultaneously for so many high profile peeps at the PMH Dominica-China Friendship Hospital and NBD.

    As to the bank president, I think you guys are asking for a bit much wee. “Strategic thinker with proven ability to identify and assess trends and changes in the global environment and to manage and influence positive change in a timely manner”

    Don’t know where you find such a person but I believe the Ministry of Finance can outsource one of its top finance gurus to fill this position.

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 6 Thumb down 3
