We strongly believe that the lands in Barbuda belong to the people of Barbuda. The traditions and customs developed over the past one hundred and fifty (150) years since the end of slavery will be maintained. We believe that Barbudans now have Absolute Title over these Lands and that these rights and interests should be clearly recognized in the Law. We will continue to stand up for this belief so that all Barbudans can determine the way the development of the land proceeds. We will also utilize the lands in Barbuda for development purposes so that our people can have a higher standard of living.
"In Barbuda you will see a Caribbean island that is un spoilt by tourism, it is renowned for its beaches which are natural, sprinkled with pink sand and miles long. The island has the deep blue Atlantic on one side with wild beaches full of driftwood and shells and the calm Caribbean Sea on the other, perfect for swimming and snorkeling, with plenty of opportunities to see turtles and many varieties of tropical fish undisturbed in the turquoise water. The beauty of the island is its natural, peaceful way of life".
We will promote locally owned hotels and guesthouses where Barbudans will be the prime beneficiaries. We will also encourage the development of eco- tourism sector so that we can enjoy
the benefits of an up-scale market and protect our environment. Expansion of the Five Star Hotel sector, similar to Coco-Point will be encouraged urgently.
We will improve and manage our water production capacity to fulfill our responsibility to make available safe, clean water to all our people. Any excess production will be used to help our Sister Island in their time of need. Any profits generated will be applied to the Barbuda Council consolidated fund for the benefit of all Barbudans. We will not adapt the "Build Own Operate Transfer" (BOOT) approach favored by the ALP government in recent years. This BOOT approach results in private _individuals reaping tremendous benefits at the expenses of present and future generations.
Denmark and other countries established the production of generated electricity. We feel Barbuda has the ideal conditions for this technology and therefore the cost of electricity will be considerably lower. The use solar and sea energy forms will also be explored.
The BPM will embark on a program to construct and improve roads on Barbuda. To under take this programme we will seek to get a percentage of all funds accessed
