Barbados international business minister, Donville Inniss, will not be “pulling any punches” at this week’s Peer Review Group of the Global Forum of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) in Paris. At that meeting, Inniss and his team are expected to defend Barbados’ position since being blacklisted by the European Union (EU), along with several other Caribbean countries, for being an uncooperative tax jurisdiction. In an address at a reception last Thursday evening, the minister revealed that he would head a delegation comprising staff of his ministry’s international business division and the Barbados Revenue Authority, along with key European advisors.

Twenty-eight European Union (EU) Member States and 78 African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries are legally bound by the provisions of the Cotonou Agreement, with its three intertwined pillars: a political dimension, development strategies and economic and trade cooperation. In February 2020, the Cotonou Agreement will expire and a new relationship has to be designed, taking into account the achievements and shortcomings of the agreement. The EU position is expected by May 2017. The European Parliament's consent will be required before a new agreement is concluded.
