U.S. Embassy to Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean – Economic Business and AmCham


[MUSIC PLAYING] NARRATOR: Recently, the
U.S. Embassy to Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean
hosted a reception in honor of American
businesses in Barbados at the historic George
Washington House. Ambassador Larry Palmer welcomed
a range of American and local business people at the event. He also highlighted
embassy grants for entrepreneurs and President
Obama’s National Export Initiative. LARRY PALMER: The US
economy and creating jobs is a top priority
for President Obama. With the launch of the
President’s National Export Initiative in early 2010,
all agencies with a role in U.S./international trade,
including the Department of State were asked to play
a more active role in export promotion, and given the
state of our economies, no issue is more
important today. NARRATOR: Ambassador Palmer
and American businessman Dustin Delany formally
announced the formation of an American
Chamber of Commerce for Barbados and the
Eastern Caribbean. DUSTIN DELANY: We
urge U.S. And non-U.S. Businesses alike
to get involved. AmCham Barbados and
the Eastern Caribbean is about mutual benefit and
the facilitation of business with the United States, within
[INAUDIBLE] jurisdictions, and the rest of the world. One would be hard
pressed to find a network as effective
and expansive as the global
network of AmChams. NARRATOR: American
Chambers of Commerce are closely aligned
with the United States’ diplomatic priority to level
the playing field by promoting an open, free, transparent,
and fair economic system around the world. MR. DELANY: It is with
great, great pleasure that I announce the
formation of the American Chamber of Commerce for Barbados
and the Eastern Caribbean. [MUSIC PLAYING]
