Ahmed Al Khateeb and Minister of Transport and Logistic Services, H.E. Saleh bin Nasser Al-Jasser respectively.

Fostering New Partnerships

The signing commenced on Tuesday, November 29th, 2022 at the World Travel and Tourism Global Summit, which is being held in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. It symbolizes the growing relations between the two countries and provides an opportunity for Barbados to expand its global reach.

Minister of Tourism and International Transport, Hon Ian Gooding-Edghill stated “The agreement that we signed today will go a long way in furthering our ties with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. It will also explore opportunities for mutual cooperation between both countries in the respect of tourism.”

The minister further stated that there are also other benefits that we will derive from this Memorandum of Understanding as the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia seeks to develop and expand its tourism sector and as Barbados aims to expand its reach.

Expanding Barbados’ Tourism Sector

The Memorandum of Understanding, which was signed with the Minister of Tourism, H.E. Ahmed Al Khateeb, will promote friendly relations and united efforts to achieve sustainable tourism development in both countries. Through this partnership, both countries will benefit from each’s rich local traditions and social values.

Barbados is the home of two of the three remaining Jacobean Mansions left in the Western hemisphere, as well as fully functional rum distilleries. In fact, this island is known as the birthplace of rum, commercially producing and bottling the spirit since the 1700s. Each year, Barbados hosts several world-class events including the annual Barbados Food and Rum Festival; the annual Barbados Reggae Festival; and the annual Crop Over Festival, where celebrities such as Lewis Hamilton and its very own Rihanna are often spotted.
