Barbados is positioning itself to be a global hub for the conduct of commerce, says Prime Minister Mia Mottley.

In an update on her recent trip to Canada and the United States where she met with key players in the commercial sector, Mottley said they attended meetings in Montreal, Toronto, Washington and Miami.

Speaking at a media briefing at Government Headquarters on Thursday, the Prime Minister said that in Canada they met with all the major accounting firms, tax executives, and banking officials associated with Canadian banks here and insurance executives.

Mottley explained that discussions were held with the accounting firms and tax executives to inform them about changes to legislation governing the international business sector last December. (MB)
