The Turks and Caicos Islands and Barbados share a long history of co-operation.?? Many of our young people studied at higher instructions of learning in Barbados and Barbadians have always been welcome in the TCI, with many working in the public service, especially as teachers and police officers, as well as in the private sector.?? Prime Minister Thompson was committed to promoting regional cooperation and in keeping with his valuable work we look forward to further strengthening the ties between our countries and the rest if the region.
