PM leads seven-member delegation to Grenada next week

Prime Minister Freundel Stuart heads a seven-member Barbados delegation to Grenada next week for the annual Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Heads of Government summit.

Travelling with Stuart will be Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade Senator Maxine McClean; Minister in the Office of the Prime Minister Senator Darcy Boyce; Barbados’ CARICOM Ambassador Robert Bobby Morris; Permanent Secretary in the Prime Minister’s Office Sonja Welch; Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Cecile Humphrey; and Chief Research Officer Paula Byer.

A release issued today by the Barbados Government Information Service also revealed that Minister of Tourism and International Transport Richard Sealy will act as Prime Minister in Stuart’s absence.

The July 4-6 summit is expected to deal with a wide range of issues, including regional security, trade relations with the United Kingdom post-Brexit; air transportation, regional tourism, the ongoing border conflicts between Belize and Guatemala and Guyana and Venezuela, reparations for native genocide and slavery and non-communicable diseases.

Heads will also review progress on the CARICOM Single Market and Economy and the region’s Human Resource Development 2030 Strategy, as well as give consideration for the work plan and budget for a single ICT space.

    Barbadians are still awaiting the report on the official visit to China almost 5 years ago. He is enjoying his last mass, just that it is taking too long, and he will drag it out to its last breath. Lose you will so just continue sleeping and when you wake up fly. That will the same activity after the elections.

    These comments are so frivolous coming from some who seems to be constipated in their brains. I can say with confidence that none of you can ever walk in his shoes as a gentleman and as a statesman!

    Cavil Best it just goes to show the impact that this government have on us. We could as well make light of the situation and for sure we definitely don’t want to walk in his shoes. You obviously don’t know the man.

    Another dinner party and talk shop. For all the good that these C-HOGS achieve, they could have arranged a teleconference.
