Barbados will again exceed expectations with the help of its children, said Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley.

Mottley made the proclamation while addressing the crowd at Kensington Oval on Friday, Nov. 30 during a parade marking the island’s 52nd anniversary of independence, the Barbados NationNews reported.

“I want the children of this country to recognize that they must be the leaders who carry us forth,” she said. “Our aim in all that we do is to bring a better life to you.

“We have come to Kensington Oval today to say to the world that we, too, shall punch above our weight again in this country,” the prime minister said to resounding applause.
