About the BPSA

Who We Are​

The Barbados Private Sector Association (BPSA) is the umbrella agency of private sector organisations in Barbados.  The role of the Association is to promote and defend the interests of the private sector at the national level. 

The BPSA provides business support organisations and their members with representation, information and counsel, and also contributes on their behalf to national policy and social development.

The BPSA represents the private sector in the tripartite mechanism - the Social Partnership - which is comprised of the Government of Barbados, the Congress of Trade Unions and Staff Associations of Barbados (CTUSAB) and the BPSA.
