New Zealand High Commission officially opens
NEW ZEALAND has firmly planted its footprints in the Caribbean with the official opening of a mission in Barbados.
New Zealand’s Foreign Minister Murray McCully officially opened the High Commission at Lower Collymore Rock yesterday evening, in the presence of Governor General Sir Elliott Belgrave and a large turn-out of the local diplomatic and consular corps.
Jan Henderson was appointed the first New Zealand High Commissioner to Barbados last year and McCully said yesterday the action served notice of his country’s interest in fostering deeper relations between Zealand and this part of the world. (GC)
