During a special church service here on Sunday, the country’s Consul General to Bridgetown, Michael Brotherson, acknowledged the closeness and similarities with Barbados.

He told the large gathering at the Cathedral of St Michael and All Angels that the two countries, which both achieved political independence in 1966, enjoyed “strong, cordial and mutually beneficial relations”.

 

Several Barbados-based Guyanese attended the independence service.

Also noting that Guyana and Barbados were both Caribbean Community (CARICOM) founding members, he said, “over the decades, both countries, the records will show, have publicly demonstrated their commitment to the ideals and principles of regional integration.

“Over the years, Guyana and Barbados have maintained and nurtured their bilateral relationship and today that cooperation is as meaningful as ever.

“I am happy to reiterate the fact that Barbados remains an important partner of Guyana’s.

“The Government of Guyana remains committed to working with the Government of Barbados in the years ahead to further deepen the excellent bonds of friendship that exist between our two countries.”

    Well said buddy sometimes I wonder if some of these comments are written by people who had access to free education no wonder it has to be paid for now ….blame him because we black people had access to free university education yet our civil service is so poor…..drive around Barbados and see the voluntarily unemployed blame him for that too and whilst you all at it blame him when ever more that twenty black people assemble together someone is shot yet the people of the fairer complexion that resides here concentrating on making money
