The Prime Minister will lead a delegation of senior government officials to the two-day meeting (February 18-19), including Minister of Foreign Affairs Darren Henfield; Reuben Rahming, Bahamas Ambassador to CARICOM States; and Travis Robinson, MP.


Discussions on the meeting’s agenda include security, blacklisting and border issues. The Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, will address CARICOM leaders as a special guest.

Prime Minister Minnis will meet with Prime Minister Trudeau on the margins of the meeting to discuss matters of mutual interest to The Bahamas and Canada.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Peter Turnquest, will act as Prime Minister in the Prime Minister’s absence.
