Invest Barbados

Why Barbados?




Barbados enjoys a positive image in the marketplace as a reputable International Business Centre of choice and has been successfully attracting Foreign Direct Investment for decades, particularly from Canada and the USA.  For many years, the country has been recognised as the 3rd leading destination for Canadian direct investment abroad, garnering Cdn$68.3 billion of direct investment from Canada at the end of 2016 (Statistics Canada). Professor Walid Hejazi has indicated that "...the OECD is satisfied that Canadian direct investment abroad that goes to or through Barbados...complies with OECD standards for transparency and exchange of information - standards which Barbados expects of all corporations active in its jurisdiction. Countries like Barbados allow Canadian firms in those industries which drive the global economy to maintain their competitiveness." (Hejazi, W. 2007)

Companies looking to thrive in a highly competitive global marketplace invest in Barbados, to capitalize on the business-friendly environment, strong human capital, high-quality infrastructure, investment protection, and good quality of life.
