Barbados will install a new minister of tourism and international transport on Wednesday.

In a reorganization of the Barbados cabinet, Prime Minister Mia Mottleyannounced that health and wellness minister Ian Gooding-Edghill will assume the portfolio for the island’s bread-and-butter industry, replacing Senator Lisa Cummins.

During the prime minister’s address at the Barbados Labour Party’s (BLP) 83rd annual conference over the weekend, Mottley announced that Cummins will now be responsible for energy and business development, with an emphasis on international business and trade.

“I have asked Senator Lisa Cummins to also take responsibility for the Ministry of Energy and Business (Development) because Lisa … was responsible for the (Barbados Coalition of Service Industries),” said Prime Minister Mottley, underscoring Cummins’ suitability for the new job due to her training in foreign trade and diplomacy.

Minister Gooding-Edghill is a former human resources director with Elegant Hotels Group.

Marketplace Excellence Corporation (MPE) is a global public relations, marketing and media company.
