Prime Minister Dr Hubert Minnis is scheduled to attend the 38th Regular Meeting of the Conference of Heads of Government of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), St. George’s, Grenada, this week.

Accompanying the Prime Minister are his wife, Patricia Minnis; Darren Henfield, Minister of Foreign Affairs; Jeffrey Lloyd, Minister of Education; Joshua Sears, senior policy advisor to Prime Minister Minnis; Reuben Rahming, Bahamas ambassador-designate to CARICOM; and Sharon Brennen-Haylock, director-general, Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The conference will welcome its two newest members – Prime Minister Minnis (sworn into office on May 11 following the 2017 General Election), and Jovenel Moise (sworn in as President of Haiti February, 2017).

This meeting is expected to include a presentation for approval of a ‘Human Resource Development 2030 Strategy and Implementation Plan’ to address the development of skills for the 21st Century Caribbean economy and society.

The Heads of Government are also expected to deliberate on outstanding matters related to the implementation of the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME) following the comprehensive review of the CSME’s performance presented to them at February’s Inter-Sessional Meeting.

Delegates will also discuss progress made regarding implementation of the specified actions, agreed to ten years ago under the 2007 Port-of-Spain Declaration, to stop the epidemic of Non-Communicable Diseases (NDCs); tourism in the region; and future trade relations with the UK. Regional Security issues are also expected to receive attention.
