Barbados Commemorates 49 Years of Independence

SAN JUAN – Prime Minister Freundel Stuart commemorated on Monday the 49th anniversary of Barbadian independence by hailing the country’s thriving economy and calling on citizens to decolonize their minds.

“We have seen Barbados transformed and the lives of its people enriched by the changes which our elevation to nationhood brought with it,” Stuart said in an address to the nation.

The prime minister pointed to the economy’s diversification over the course of history, from sugarcane to tourism, financial services, renewable energy and cultural industries.

While Barbados gained its independence from Britain in 1966, the process will remain incomplete without a decolonization of the mind, he said.

“We must make the transition from nationhood to real independence,” Stuart said, urging citizens to become more engaged in shaping the country’s future.
