Bajans in the diaspora urged to give back

May 6, 2024

Minister in the Ministry of Finance and Economic Affairs, Ryan Straughn says it is time for Barbadians living in the diaspora to find ways to give back to the country.

The Minister was speaking during a StreetMic session at the Barbados High Commission, in Tottenham Court Road, London, over the weekend.  

Also present at the event were the Barbados High Commission to London, his Excellency Milton Inniss, Special Envoy for Investment in the UK and Diaspora Business, Tony Sealy, and Barbados Revenue Authority Revenue Commissioner, Mrs. Louisa Lewis-Ward. 

Minister Straughn adds it was imperative that Barbados seeks to achieve as high a return on investments similar to the UK and the USA. 

He says to do this, the Government of Barbados has embarked on a comprehensive reform programme, including making business seamless for Barbadians in and out of the island.
