Barbados to take advantage of investment & economic opportunities from Latin America

January 24, 2023

Expect more investment and economic opportunities coming out of Latin America.

That’s the prediction of Special Envoy to the Prime Minister on Investment and Financial Services, Professor Avinash Persaud.

His comments come as Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley is leading Barbados’ delegation in Argentina for the historic meeting of Latin American and Caribbean leaders.

The 7th Leaders’ Summit of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) opened with host President Alberto Fernández calling for unity and respect and on member countries to work together.

Now Professor Persaud explains Barbados has a prime opportunity to tap into new markets across Latin America.

The Prime Minister’s Special Envoy paints a picture of what could be a turning point for Barbados as it strengthens ties with our South American neighbours.

Professor Persaud says it’s all about positioning Barbados as a regional hub for tourism, air traffic and cargo.
