The "Commission for Pan-African Affairs", has been mandated by the Government of Barbados to address and rectify that deficiency in Barbadian institutions and national life which is manifested in the relative dearth of relationships, exchanges and interactions with the nations, population groups and institutions of the continent of Africa and the world-wide African Diaspora.

The objectives of the Commission are:

•  To ensure that the Government and institutions of Barbados establish concrete political, economic and cultural links with the Governments and institutions of Africa and the African Diaspora
•  To assist in the development of the African derived segment of the Barbadian cultural landscape.
•  To be available as a Pan-African resource institution to be drawn upon by other Government departments and private sector agencies.
