Barbados and Cyprus have announced that they are to begin negotiating a double taxation agreement to strengthen economic relations between the two territories.

Barbados and Cyprus have announced that they are to begin negotiating a double taxation agreement (DTA) to strengthen economic relations between the two territories.

Barbados Prime Minister Freundel Stuart noted that although diplomatic relations between the two countries were established in 1972, economic opportunities have yet to be fully explored. He identified financial services and tourism as common areas in which Barbados and Cyprus could learn from one another.

Last month Barbados called on the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) to work together to increase awareness of the important global economic contribution of small Caribbean international financial centers (IFCs). Representatives from the territory had reported that Barbados had struggled to enter into tax deals with other territories due to misconceptions surrounding Caribbean IFCs.
