JOHN’S, Antigua, Dec 16, CMC – Prime Minister Gaston Browne has arrived in the Middle East for talks aimed at luring investors to Antigua and Barbuda.

A government statement said that Browne, who is being accompanied by a delegation that includes Foreign Affairs and International Trade Minister, Charles Fernandez, will meet with international investors in Lebanon, Qatar and Dubai “to raise funds for a number of projects” here including the much publicised government’s housing programme.

Prime Minister Browne said that his visit to the Middle East is part of his government’s drive to set the platform for future growth and development here and to attract investments to the country.

“Government finances are in such shambles so it will take at least a decade to turn things around for Antigua and Barbuda.  The future of the country looks very bright under the leadership of the Antigua and Barbuda Labour Party,” he said.

Prime Minister Browne is due to return here on the weekend, the statement said.
