New UNCTAD 15 date as website launched
The United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), to be held in Barbados, has been rescheduled for April 25 to 30, next year.
The new date was announced by national co-ordinator for UNCTAD 15, Teresa Marshall at the official launch of the conference website yesterday morning. She said the site was intended to profile Barbados and would provide “comprehensive information for delegates attending the conference”.
Marshall also said the website would highlight the priorities Barbados and the Caribbean wished to see addressed at the meeting, as well as inform Barbadians about the conference and the economic opportunities it can provide.
The Garfield Sobers Gymnasium will be the venue for the opening and closing ceremonies, while the daily meetings will take place at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre (LESC).
A two-acre parcel of land obliquely opposite the LESC will be the site of the Village Market Place where Bajan food, arts, music and culture will be showcased and sold. (GC)
