CARICOM officially opens diplomatic mission in Kenya

Barbados' Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade Minister, Dr. Jerome Walcott, has officially opened the CARICOM diplomatic mission in Nairobi, making it the first for the 15-member regional integration movement on the African continent.

Dr. Walcott says the commissioning of the mission in Kenya is a testament to Barbados' outreach to the motherland and cradle of civilization.

"Barbados, at this time, looks to Africa in pursuit of new relationships and partners with the aim of deepening engagement and cooperation with like-minded nations both bilaterally and multilaterally," he added.

He said this latest development is the result of a continued commitment to cooperation made between the Prime Minister of Barbados, Mia Mottley, and the President of Kenya, Uhuru Kenyatta.
