Minister of Foreign Affairs Darren Henfield led a delegation from The Bahamas to Miami, Florida, for a one-day Ministerial Meeting that resulted in the launch of the US-Caribbean Resilience Partnership April 12, 2019.

The Meeting, which took place at the US Southern Command headquarters in Miami, was hosted by US Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan, who led an interagency team of US senior officials and experts.
