The Green Party hopes the Environmental Allowance will stimulate the circulation of money in the Vincentian economy and assist in eradicating poverty within SVG.

According to the party’s release, they hope that with money circulating, “the economy will be more vibrant and the allowance would create trade for everyone … and new entrepreneurs could rely on this income while their businesses start up.”

The release urged voters to vote the telephone, the symbol of the party and continued, “no other party can deliver the economic expertise needed to make the Environmental Allowance a success.”
