Barbados to be Represented at U.S. and Latin American Mayors’ Forum
Chairperson of The Revitalisation of Bridgetown Initiative (TRBI) Mrs. Sharon Christie (pictured) will attend the U.S. and Latin American Mayors’ Forum being hosted by the Emerging and Sustainable Cities Initiative (ESCI) in Dallas, USA from 19-20 June 2014.
More than 300 U.S. mayors and private sector representatives will converge at the forum to exchange ideas and best practices in urban development. By attending the event, TRBI is hoping to gain additional information on the innovative public private partnerships that have revived Dallas’ urban areas with a view of adapting it to revitalize the city of Bridgetown as well as draw on the various models used to advance sustainable cities.
TRBI was formed through the Barbados Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI) to stimulate increased economic and social activity within the nation’s capital. Ms. Christie has chaired the TRBI project for over two years and has played an integral role in the BCCI’s strides towards breathing new life into our city.
“The BCCI is grateful to the Inter-American Development Bank for their ongoing support of the BCCI’s drive towards Local Economic Development and the ESCI project,” says BCCI Executive Director Mrs. Lisa Gale.
