Two new events launched
BARBADOS LAUNCHED its promotion of two major events that will highlight the contribution of Barbadians to global history.
One event is the third Diaspora Conference, set for August 3-7 at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre. The other event, also planned for August, is the Centennial Celebration of the opening of the Panama Canal, the building of which was said to have attracted about 60 000 Barbadian workers.
At today’s launch, Acting Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade Dr Esther Byer Suckoo said the Diaspora Conference reflected the commitment of Government to “recognising and building upon the invaluable contribution that Barbadians overseas have played in national development”. (TY)
