Government and private sector officials from Barbados will travel to Cuba in early May to expand and explore business opportunities in the territory, announced the Minister of Industry, Donville Inniss.

According to Inniss, with the visit, the Executive also it intends to deepen economic relations and trade between the two countries due to the increasing number of local companies willing to invest in the sister nation.

The minister also reported that from next month the firm Bank Breweries Limited will begin to export about one million cases of beer to Cuba and expressed interest in the International Tourism Fair to be held from May 3 to 7 in Havana.

Barbados, Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana and Jamaica were the first Caribbean states that in 1972 decided to establish diplomatic relations with Havana and break the isolation faced by the government after the triumph of the revolution in January 1959.

Such a gesture opened the way for the remaining territories of the region to establish ties with Cuba and later, in 2002, led to implement the mechanism of summits between that country and the Caribbean Community bloc that brings together several islands in the region.
