Barbados seeking more European visitors
ON THE HEELS of record tourist arrivals for the month of January, Acting Prime Minister, Richard Sealy, wants to see more visitors coming from continental Europe.
He made this known today when Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to Barbados, Jeroen de Graaf, paid him a courtesy call at Government Headquarters. Also present was Honorary Consul of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Anthony Gittens.
Sealy pointed out that the United Kingdom remains Barbados’ number one European source market, but said discussions were ongoing with officials in different countries across that region to increase tourist arrivals.
The Acting Prime Minister told the envoy that Barbados’ relationship with the Kingdom of the Netherlands was very important, and expressed the hope that it could be strengthened.
Ambassador de Graaf noted the importance of tourism to the Caribbean, and stressed that all countries should work together to showcase this region. (BGIS)
