Barbados' response to disasters must encompass a joint effort between government and the private sector.

So says Minister of Home Affairs, Edmund Hinkson, who was delivering the feature address at a hurricane preparedness meeting.

It was a joint initiative of the Barbados Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Barbados and the Caribbean's Disaster Emergency Agencies and the United Nations.

Minister Hinkson says the private sector's role must be defined by much more than just sponsorship.
