Barbados intends to be the best jurisdiction for international business and financial services in the world.
This pledge was made by Minister of Finance and Economic Affairs Chris Sinckler, as he addressed a cocktail reception hosted by Total Banking Corporation, at Cin Cin Restaurant, Prospect, St James, on Thursday night. The Montreal-based international financial company is a subsidiary of Cidel Bank and has a branch in Collymore Rock.
Sinckler told the audience of executives that Government would continue to work assiduously with all regional and international organizations to ensure that Barbados remained a “clean jurisdiction that can practise its craft at the highest possible international standards”.
Consequently, he encouraged all Barbadians to unite and to work with investors to wrest the sector out of the slump it had been experiencing for the past few years, so that it could continue to contribute to the development of the country. (BGIS)
