United Progressive Party candidate for St Michael South Sandra Corbin wants to place information technology and production centres in the
constituency and is confident things can start soon after elections.
She shared this vision with the media today after emerging from the Graydon Sealy Secondary School nomination centre where she was nominated as a candidate after an early hiccup when the first-time politician was unable to locate the legally required proposer and seconder to make her candidacy valid.
“I am sure that the UPP will make a brilliant impact and will surprise everyone,” she nonetheless asserted.
Corbin said that she will be aided in making a reality of her vision through, “contacts that I have overseas”.
Corbin plans, “to create an area in St Michael South which is going to be a technological hub”.
“I have identified the premises which we will use. The project is called Silicon Beach, and it is a technological centre whereby youth can develop apps . . . and they will be able to even put their cultural industries products online for sale”.
Additionally, the UPP candidate said, “I’ve also identified a building . . . that we will be able to put plant and equipment there for people that have Barbadian products to be able to produce their products in one spot. It also will help them with marketing and so on”.
