ST. GEORGE'S, GRENADA, March 26, 2014 - GIS:
The Grenada Beverage Alcohol Alliance says it’s eager to work with the Government to promote responsible distribution and consumption of beverage alcohol products.

Representatives from the alliance made their commitment during a meeting with Prime Minister Dr. Keith Mitchell Wednesday morning at the ministerial complex.

The alliance members have promised to work with the Government on any initiative that tackles concerns about illegal manufacturing and distribution of spirits.

Prime Minister Mitchell, in addressing the concerns of the group, stated that “there are serious potential health implications as a result of these unlicensed and untested products being consumed by our people, and we therefore need to move speedily to address those within the legal framework. The well being of our people is at stake.”

Meantime a similar message was highlighted at another morning meeting between Prime Minister Mitchell and manufacturers.

“Working together to solve existing problems.” That was the theme echoed throughout the meeting between the Prime Minister and manufacturers of the Grenada Chamber of Industry and Commerce.

The parties recognized the need to restructure Grenada’s debt, while building the economy to ensure that local manufacturers get fair opportunities and markets for their products.

Understanding that there are some outstanding issues to address, the manufacturers pledged to continue to pen concerns and dialog with the Ministry of Finance to ensure the ultimate economic wellbeing of the nation.
