Richard Sealy told : “We understood a couple of things at the time. Barbados’ hotel stock had been somewhat dated; we had just over 5,000 hotel rooms and a lot of those rooms were not really new rooms. A lot of those rooms were not branded, and that’s not to say there’s anything wrong with indigenous brands, because they are a huge part of our tourism experience, but we understood that we needed more international brands and we needed to get more foreign investment into our accommodation plant,” External link
