Prime Minister Gaston Browne has firmly stated that his administration will remain steadfast in its support for Barbuda, refusing to let ‘obstructionists’ weaken their resolve to fully integrate the island and its residents into national life.

This assurance was delivered in his address marking the 10th anniversary of the Antigua and Barbuda Labour Party’s governance, from June 12, 2014, to June 12, 2024.

Over the past decade, Browne highlighted the government’s continuous progress for the benefit of all inhabitants of Antigua and Barbuda.

“We have steadily advanced our nation for the betterment of everyone living on our shores. The opportunities before us are tangible, and we are determined to march confidently toward victory. Our decade in power has also been dedicated to bridging divides and fostering unity across our twin-island state,” he stated.

Addressing the ongoing efforts to integrate Barbuda, Browne acknowledged the challenges posed by persistent protests. However, he reaffirmed his administration’s commitment to overcoming these obstacles.

“Despite the relentless opposition from what I term ‘obstructionists,’ we will not waver in our mission to advance Barbuda and support our Barbudan brothers and sisters.”

Browne elaborated on the vision for Barbuda, aiming to transform it into a luxury and sustainable destination with a robust property rights system. “Antigua and Barbuda will remain a successful, unified state, with shared ownership of land and assets across both islands,” he declared.

Emphasizing the importance of inclusivity, Browne pledged to create a society where every citizen feels valued, regardless of their origin from Antigua or Barbuda. “Under my administration, no one will be left behind,” he concluded, underscoring his commitment to an empowering and cohesive leadership.
