Roulstone on government: stay out of private enterprise’s way

Independent George Town East candidate Sharon Roulstone said government red tape is hindering many great business ideas.

Speaking at Monday’s chamber forum, Ms. Roulstone said government needs to stay out of the way of private enterprise, which drives the economic fortunes of the islands. She cited cited Spinion, Ltd. as one example of a good idea strangled in red tape.

“They set up a business where they would get our iguanas and our lionfish, process them here, and export them to the United States. They made the investment, they got all the US FDA approvals, but guess where the bottleneck is: right here, in our government, four years on.” said Ms. Roulstone.
