The Ministry of Transport, Works and Maintenance and the Canadian Government have been in discussions to determine ways in which Canada can assist Barbados with technical and financial support in our transportation sector and other areas.

Earlier this week, the Canadian High Commissioner Marie Legault along with the Senior Trade Commissioner Georges Lemieux made a courtesy call to the Ministry’s Headquarters to meet with the Minister of Transport Works and Maintenance, the Honourable Dr. William Duguid and Minister in the Ministry the Honourable Peter Phillips.

During the 45-minute meeting, Minister Duguid shared with the Canadian officials that Barbados is seeking to move away from the use of fossil fuels and move to the use of Compressed Natural Gas and electric vehicles. When asked about incentives the Minister stressed the greatest incentives for Barbadians to convert will be not having to pay fuel tax.
