PM maps out White Paper to over-the-hill residents

Prime Minister Dr. Hubert Minnis.

Prime Minister Dr. Hubert Minnis gleaned support from the over-the-hill community at a town hall meeting held at Bethel Baptist Church Wednesday evening.

Dr. Minnis mapped out the White Paper recently tabled in the House of Assembly (HOA) to dozens of community residents, who also had an opportunity to share their views on the initiative.

Recent concerns about the possible gentrification of the area as well as the economic implications that will allow more businesses into the new “empowerment zones” were also discussed.

Dr. Minnis told attendees that the White Paper outlines a plan “not to just give a man a fish, but it presents a plan to teach a man to fish”.
