Baptiste noted an increase of 22.7 percent in visitor arrivals over the 2003 figures, but harped on the fact that figures were not being taken seriously by some persons responsible for collecting the data. She outlined the importance of the figures. She pointed out that Bequia statistics were missing in some reports and she outlined that someone was not performing their duties.
“It is time that the seriousness of this matter is brought to bear on these matters,” Baptiste said.
