The SRC extends congratulations to our Advisory Board Member, Senator Lisa R. Cummins, who was selected to be Barbados’ next Minister of Tourism and International Transport. Senator Cummins was appointed as the Board Chairperson of the Barbados Port Inc. by the administration of the Hon. Mia Amor Mottley, Prime Minister of Barbados, in 2018. Her promotion to the post of Minister of Tourism and International Transport was announced during Prime Minister Mottley’s cabinet reshuffle on Wednesday, 22 July.
A former alumna of the SRC’s flagship Masters in International Trade Policy (MITP) programme, Senator Cummins has had a long and distinguished career in the fields of diplomacy, trade policy, trade negotiations and business development. She was for many years the Executive Director of the Barbados Coalition of Service Industries (BCSI) until becoming the present Executive Director of Lumin Consulting, a company of The University of the West Indies.
The SRC wishes Senator Cummins well in her new position.
