The African nation of Lesotho is seeking Barbados’ help in developing its tourism industry.

Lesotho High Commissioner to Barbados Dr Mathabo Tsepa recently held talks with Barbados Prime Minister Freundel Stuart, expressing an interest in drawing on Barbados’ expertise in the area.

According to Tsepa, Lesotho is looking to improve its tourism sector enough to make it the country’s main source of economic activity.

She said Lesotho was a tiny country with limited arable land that had seen its agricultural exports hampered by the impact of climate change.

“[Given the successful work in tourism that Barbados has demonstrated, the Government of Lesotho would like to draw on Barbados’ expertise and human exchanges and experiences to learn from you and your government how you have attained this success,” she told Stuart

Stuart said Barbados was ready to share its “know how” with Lesottho.

The mountainous country is surrounded on all sides by South Africa.
