Liberia Inward Mission: Business Roundtable Discussion and Exhibition

Invest Barbados in collaboration with Export Barbados will be hosting a Liberia Inward Mission: Business Roundtable Discussion & Exhibition on May 10, 2024, at the Hilton Barbados Resort from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

This invitation-only event is just one of many activities planned during the historic visit of over 250 Liberians, who will arrive in Barbados from May 6-13 in recognition of the 159th Anniversary of the Migration of 346 Barbadians to the West African country.

The pilgrimage presents a unique opportunity to broaden Barbadians’ knowledge of Liberia and to explore the possibility of cultural cooperation and a knowledge exchange between the two countries. It also provides an opportunity for investment and business prospects, as well as to learn more about the work in research and genealogy being undertaken by the Department of Archives and The University of the West Indies chronicling the Barbados/Liberia experience.

Through the Liberia-Barbados Business Roundtable and Exhibition, Invest Barbados will capitalise on the potential investment opportunities between the two countries, forge closer partnerships with the Liberian contingent, while sharing Barbados’ value proposition.  The agenda will also comprise an ‘Overview of Liberia’s Economic Landscape’, a panel discussion identifying the challenges and opportunities faced by investors in Liberia, as well as presentations on ‘Trade Opportunities in Barbados’ and ‘Buying Real Estate in Barbados’.

Under the theme, ‘Sankofa: The Pilgrimage to Barbados’, the visit is being co-ordinated by a team from Liberia, headed by Ambassador Llewelyn Witherspoon and the Division of Culture, Prime Minister’s Office.
