May European Engineering Service providers open a business here in Barbados under the EPA?

February 09 2012 | Engineering Services


There is no provision under the EPA allowing EU companies to invest in or establish businesses in Barbados in the Engineering Services sector.  However, when such an investment does take place, Barbados has committed to ensuring that the EU service providers are not discriminated against in favour of domestic suppliers.  Barbados also has not committed to allowing EU nationals to come into Barbados to provide their services in this sector.  Key personnel and graduate trainees are permitted entry only when these skills are not available locally.
