A taste of Bim

Foreign business delegates making the Barbadian connection.

Latin American and Caribbean delegates attending the current forum on financing micro-enterprises at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre, put their serious business on pause last night for about two and a half hours to get a taste of Barbadian culture and cuisine.

The near 1,000 visitors representing multilateral financial institutions, micro-financing service providers, academia and other corporate sector leadership, journeyed to the Heritage Park at Four Square Plantation in St. Philip for one big party and reception sponsored by the Government of Barbados. The location, otherwise known as the Rum Factory, no doubt provided the environment to get the visiting business people in the right spirit.

As they sampled the wide variety of Barbadian food and drink, the restored nineteenth century buildings, supplemented by gift shops in traditional Bajan vernacular style, also exposed the delegates

to another aspect of local heritage. (EJ)
