Seeing eye to eye

Canada is committed to working with Barbados on a number of environmental projects.

High Commissioner of Canada to Barbados, Richard Hanley, gave this assurance during a courtesy call on Minister of the Environment and Drainage, Dr. Denis Lowe, last Monday, at his Hincks Street office.

The envoy said his country would continue to build on its relationship with Barbados, by creating economic opportunities on the island, as well as assisting with environmental based projects.

The high commissioner further pointed to the need for islands, such as Barbados to receive assistance, since they are “vulnerable to environmental disasters” and these could have a profound impact on a country’s economic and tourism sector.

The envoy also noted the importance of such programmes as the Black Belly Sheep Project, stating that there “is a market for the meat locally and internationally”, and added that more young people should be encouraged to pursue a career in farming.

In turn, Lowe welcomed the offer of Canada’s continued assistance and said that this would contribute to the strengthening of ties between the two countries.
