Barbados is looking forward to strengthening cultural and sporting ties with Argentina.
Minister of Family, Culture, Sports and Youth, Stephen Lashley, expressed this view yesterday during a courtesy call by the Ambassador of the Argentine Republic, Marcelo Salviolo.
Mr. Lashley said: "We are keen to discuss what other assistance we can get from Argentina, and any reciprocal arrangements that could be worked out."
The Minister is optimistic that a friendly football game could be arranged between the two countries and held in Barbados, as well as a football clinic, with the players interacting with young Barbadians. He suggested that Argentina could look at sending a group of people to showcase their culture during the Crop Over Festival.
