Guernsey 'needs more entrepreneurs'

A Guernsey politician says people in the island need to find more 'niches' in the market and come up with new industries.

Deputy Barry Paint was speaking in the week that it was announced GDP has risen slightly, but that there has been a drop in the money made from traditional island industries such a leisure and horticulture.

The Deputy says islanders need to move on from the areas that have made them money in the past and find new ideas.

And he says that the ideas, and efforts, need to come from individuals.
