Going Global with Africa
CONNECTING TO AFRICA holds the key to the development of Barbados, says Minister of Culture Stephen Lashley.
The minister was speaking at the inaugural Pan-African Colloquium at the University of the West Indies (UWI) Cave Hill Campus on Wednesday night.
Addressing a packed lecture theatre, Lashley said that his ministry was pleased to partner with the university and the Pan-African Policy and Research Group (PANAFSTRAG) and added that he believed the work being done there was of high importance for Barbadians in general.
“This approach understands that we can only be confident if we build our self-esteem by reinforcing and celebrating our African identity. I do believe that this is the key to our holistic development and our prosperity as a people,” Lashley said. (AD)
