TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO seems poised to re-establish a high commission in Barbados, in a move that would reflect the strong business and other links between the two nations.

The twin-island republic closed its previous embassy here 25 years ago, but since then companies based in Port of Spain have made significant investments in Barbados and some, such as Massy and Republic Bank, have become household names.

Chief of Protocol in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, Philip St Hill, would not go into details, but did confirm that the Trinidad and Tobago government had sought permission to set up the consular facility last year, and that Cabinet had approved the application in January.

But a diplomatic source told the SUNDAY SUN that it was up to the Trinidadian authorities to send officials here to start the logistics involved in setting up the office.
