UWI, a foreign exchange earner

The University of the West Indies Cave Hill campus earns more foreign exchange than most hotels in Barbados and has the potential to become an even stronger economic force.
This is the assessment of Opposition Leader Owen Arthur who said the campus generated more foreign exchange than local dollars invested in its operations.
“There is now a Barbados brand at Cave Hill that has been internationalized,” he said, while speaking at a breakfast meeting hosted by the Human Resource Management Association of Barbados (HRMAB) earlier today.
“This asset is now a public and private good to be leveraged and commercialized.”
The former Prime Minister said Cave Hill and Barbados were ranked in the top 20 destinations for American students seeking an international learning experience.
