Barbados’ Prime Minister, Mia Mottley is looking to Africa and the Pacific for new growth prospects for artists and designers from Barbados and the rest of the region.

According to the Barbados Today News, she made her intentions known on Saturday night while attending a fashion show in Nairobi, Kenya where young fashion designers got the opportunity to show off their creations for delegates from the African, Caribbean and Pacific group of nations.

Asked by the organisers to speak to the audience, Mottley was quoted as saying, “For a very long time we have seen the benefits of cooperation with the ACP and UE for our designers and creatives, and indeed, Caribbean Export has been doing an excellent job in creating that platform for our artists and designers.
