THE BARBADOS PORT Inc. (BPI) and the Port of Tenerife, Spain signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to establish a sister port relationship this morning.

The MOU is a result of discussion which took place for the Barbados 50 Yacht Race.

It is said to cover joint marketing of Atlantic crossing yacht races, cooperation in cruise tourism, collaboration in the area of container terminal management and security considerations in cargo and container ports.

The agreement was signed at BPI’s University Row, Bridgetown office by chairman of BPI David Harding, chief executive officer David Jean-Marie and commercial director of the Port of Tenerife Airam Diaz Pastor.

The 65 boats in the Barbados 50 race began their journey in London on July 31 then made their way to Falmouth. They will continue via Spain, the Canary Islands and the East Coast of Africa. They are scheduled to arrive in Barbados before November 30. (TG)
