British High Commissioner to Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean, Mrs. Janet Douglas congratulated the new envoy on his 5 October appointment, noting it was a prime opportunity to strengthen the UK’s trade and investment relationship with the region.

She said, “Our High Commission teams in Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean are delighted that Mr Henry has been appointed.
