Another round of major funding is in the pipeline for Barbados.

The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) Group says it will give Government access to US$300 million in “sovereign-guaranteed loans” over the next five years.

The financier also wants to have “dialogue” with the Mia Mottley administration about how it can help solve public transportation and health challenges.
