Carib High Commissioners in London To Lobby Against APD

The Caribbean High Commissioners in the United Kingdom (UK) are gearing up to lobby the British Government for an ease in the Airline Passenger Duty (APD) and have secured £40,000 to assist them in this effort.
Minister of Tourism and International Transport, Richard Sealy, gave an update on his recent visit to the UK to meet with players in the tourism industry, during an interview with the Barbados Government Information Service.
The Minister said the funds were sourced from a UK-based Jamaican Building Society to assist the High Commissioners in their fight.  He also said the APD Steering Group of which Barbados' High Commissioner was a member, was fully on board with the initiative.
