An Opportunity for Returning Nationals: Barbados Network Consultation

BNC icon

If you are considering resettling in Barbados and are currently in the island on holiday, you may want to check out the Barbados Network Consultation Conference. The conference takes place from August 5th – 7th, 2014 at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre located in Two Mile Hill St. Michael. Besides establishing linkages among Barbadian business persons and other Barbadians who live on the island and abroad, much information will be provided on the resettlement process.

According to the BNC’s programme, you may register daily from Tuesday, August 5th where programming takes place from 8:00 am – 5:30pm. The cost of registration for all three days is BD$100. You may find a copy of the registration form here. You may also register online here. You should note, however, that when you register online that all prices are quoted in US dollars.

There will be an opening ceremony, meet and greet, displays by local businesses, various lectures/panel discussions and Crop Over themed entertainment. The session that returning nationals may find particularly interesting is the one that takes place on Thursday, August 7, 2014, from 2:15 – 4:15pm. It is a two-part discussion. The first is Returning Home: Building Pathways to Resettlement, and the second is Building Connectivity Across Generations: Creating Pathways to Barbadian Status. It is an opportunity to get information on the resettlement process from senior officials from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, Customs and Excise Department, Customs Brokers, Car Dealers and Shipping Associations as well as returning nationals who seek to improve the resettlement experience for others. Immigration officials and legal experts will also be present.

For further information, such as the cost of participating for one day only, you may email pmapp@foreign.gov.bb or call 246-431-2227.
