AWARDS OF NATIONAL HONOURS FOR  

INDEPENDENCE DAY 2014

The conclusion of an air services agreement and training opportunities for Barbadians were among the areas discussed, when India’s High Commissioner, Subashini Murugesan, paid a courtesy call on Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Charles Burnett.


Mr. Burnett received the High Commissioner on behalf of the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, Senator Maxine McClean.


During the call, the two officials discussed a range of issues aimed at furthering the existing bilateral relations between the two countries.


High Commissioner Murugesan discussed the training opportunities available to eligible Barbadians under the Indian Technical Cooperation Programme. She also suggested that discussions be held on information communications technology (ICT), renewable energy and agriculture – sectors identified as beneficiaries of Indian expertise.

India Keen To Assist Barbados

The British Government has announced a further ease in the air passenger duty (APD) – a move that will ease some of the burden on families travelling to the Caribbean for a holiday.


The British Government recently announced that the APD will be scrapped for children under 12 from May next year, and will be extended to the under 16 age group from 2016.


The new tax break will save a family of four flying to the Caribbean £142 approximately (BDS $445). This measure comes in the wake of an announcement in March to cut the tax on long-haul flights – to take effect in April – after lobbying by the Caribbean and the industry as a whole.


The news of the impending change, which was announced by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, was welcomed by Barbados’ Minister of Tourism and International Transport, Richard Sealy, who is also the Chairman of the Caribbean Tourism Organization.
