The beekeeping industry of Barbados has attracted more than its fair share of investors as well as assistance from out-of-town participants. In September 2019 Argentine experts provided training for beekeepers in Barbados (as well as in Dominica) as part of API Caribe- a joint project launched by the Embassy of Argentina in Barbados in 2019 and held between the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture, the government of Argentina and the Ministries of Agriculture of the involved countries with the aim of strengthening the Caribbean beekeeping industry and to boost the productivity of its hives. 

In Barbados, Argentine specialists- representing the Pampero Beekeeping Cooperative and the Apiculture Research Laboratory of the Southern National University- visited several apiaries on the island and held a three-day training workshop for new and experienced beekeepers. During the visit, in the spirit of mutual collaboration, the Barbados Apicultural Association and the Pampero Beekeeping Cooperative signed an agreement to undertake research and other joint activities- the latter party emphasizing the need for beekeepers to work in collaboration with researchers, food scientists, biochemists as well as with those who specialize in the study of insects and trees in order to support the growth and development of the industry.
