With another $200 million issue of BOSS Plus bonds about to become available, Barbadians living overseas are being urged to invest in these Government securities.
They were advised to do so by Central Bank Governor Dr Kevin Greenidge, who said that with the economy fully recovered, “now is the time to invest” and earn a financial return while contributing to the country’s development.
He also told the online audience that with $3.2 billion in foreign reserves at the Central Bank, and another $1.5 billion “in the system”, there would be no challenge with their BOSS bonds payments being remitted to whereever they resided.
Greenidge was speaking on Monday night via Zoom during a “community conversation” hosted by Barbados’ Consul General in New York, Mackie Holder.
He said that with the first $200 million issue of BOSS Plus bonds having been fully subscribed, another of the same amount would be available within the coming days. (SC)
