‘Endless potential’ with China air link
Barbados has once again pointed out to China that an air services agreement was important if the country was to fully explore niche markets in Asia.
Prime Minister Freundel Stuart who is on a six-day trip to the Asian country said he would continue to address the issue with the Chinese government.
During a meeting with China’s Premier Wen Jiabao yesterday he brought up the subject, stating air links would also open up possibilities for more trade and commerce with countries in the orient.
“There is endless potential, especially for people-to-people exchanges. Barbados is an approved destination for outbound Chinese; so we stand ready to resume discussion on the matter,” the Prime Minister said.
Wen welcomed the Prime Minister’s visit, stating it was “indicative of the importance the two states attach to our relations”. (BGIS)
