“The Barbados American Chamber of Commerce has commenced plans towards a mission to Barbados in mid October and have already received commitments from some of those attending. Since the signature of an MOU which started the relationship between the BCCI and the BAMCC in 2013 we are pleased that the trading links have been expanding.
