The Canadian leaders had explored the world economics and decided that Barbados would continue to function as their trade booster in long run because trade with the country would give Canada an advantage of ‘dual tax treaties’ which would in turn help the Canadian companies to master their global trade and investments by remaining in a single location  and would also help them to manage and control the investments made in a single platform in a single country, but giving them innumerable profit outcomes.
