Bdos: Spring Garden we're coming
Barbados does not anticipate any reduction in the number of our fun-loving Trinidadian friends who join us every year for the Crop-Over Festival, despite the dispute that has flared up between neighbours Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago over sea territory, fishing and now trade.
This favourable projection has come from Oliver Jordan, president and chief executive officer of the Barbados Tourism Authority (BTA), and Ian Estwick, chief executive officer of the National Cultural Foundation (NCF).
That duo, along with NCF chairman Al Gilkes, were in Trinidad over the Carnival weekend to woo Trinidadians for Crop-Over.
All three men reported that the response was positive.
