Elder affairs minister, Cynthia Forde wants to see the establishment of a senior business trust.
She says the island has a wealth of talent among its senior citizens, which could see them not only being productive, but making money.
Ms. Forde's comments came after she saw the impressive work displayed at the seniors' recreational activities programme, art and craft exhibition, at the Courtney Blackman Grande Salle Friday morning.
The participants were presented with certificates from students of Harrison College, something Ms. Forde says she was proud to see, as it showed the link between the older and younger generations.
She says the seniors' recreational activities programme, which started in 1990, has now grown to 18 centres, and more than 400 seniors participate in the various activities.
