Rebuilding offers improvement opportunities
Rebuilding a country after the destruction of a hurricane is hard work. It is also very costly. Once government secures funding for the reconstruction effort, it can begin.
Such effort also can help improve the economy and infrastructure of the country affected. This is so even as our hearts go out to those who suffered injury or lost relatives or property.
This increased construction effort generates needed economic activity in the affected country. It increases employment in the construction sector and other sectors, and increases spending power of workers generally. It also allows us the opportunity to improve or replace faulty or outdated infrastructural and other systems.
People of the countries affected should seek to benefit from this reconstruction opportunity in every way possible.
