Chamber Congratulates PLP On Election Win

July 19, 2017

The Bermuda Chamber of Commerce is congratulating the Progressive Labour Party [PLP] on winning the 2017 General Election.

John Wight, President of the Chamber of Commerce, said, “The Chamber meets regularly with the Government of the day, as well as with the Opposition. Bermuda-based businesses require economic, social and political stability to thrive and we look forward to working with the PLP, on behalf of our members, to that end.

“We applaud the PLP’s stand on collaboration and believe that the leaders of this country have the opportunity to try and bring this country together.

“In particular, we look to Government to provide clear, fair policies that create an environment conducive to keeping Bermuda working and our economy growing. One of the many challenges we face is an ageing and declining population, and all sectors in Bermuda that offer local products and services need more consumers in Bermuda to survive.

“Without more taxpayers in Bermuda local businesses will continue to absorb too large a portion of the tax burden required to narrow the deficit.

“As an important stakeholder representing all Bermuda businesses, the Bermuda Chamber of Commerce looks forward to working with the PLP on these and all other issues that affect our members and Bermuda as a whole.”
