Investment Opportunities for the Diaspora
The Barbados diaspora continues to play an integral role in the growth and national development of the island. With a sense of pride, the diaspora has always found a way to contribute to the Barbados economy either through the purchasing of Barbadian products and services in their respective markets, sharing of their experience and providing advice, funding of programmes and projects in Barbados and also through philanthropic activities.
