President Irfaan Ali has been conferred with the Order of Freedom of Barbados, the country’s highest national award.

President Ali was among the list of Independence Day honourees revealed on Thursday and it includes Rwandan President Paul Kagame.

President Ali was named for “strong commitment to enhancing cooperation” to achieve regional integration and deeper social and economic partnerships for the upliftment of the people of Barbados and the region.

While mostly given to Bajans, the Honourary Award can be given to a distinguished person who is not a citizen of Barbados.
