Fahy to attend CARICOM conference

Home Affairs Minister Michael Fahy will represent Government at a meeting of CARICOM leaders in Antigua tomorrow.

At the four-day conference — the 35th regular meeting of the Inter-Sessional Meeting of the Conference of Heads of Government of the Caribbean Community — leaders will discuss such matters as the economy, border and immigration matters, law enforcement, health and human development and provisional issues.

A specific agenda item will be the Heads of Government's review and consideration of the final draft of the Five-Year Strategic Plan for the Community.

The plan identifies six integrated strategic priorities for the group over a five-year period from 2015 — building economic resilience, social resilience, environmental resilience, technological resilience, strengthening the CARICOM identity and spirit of community, and strengthening community governance.

Two enabling priorities have also been identified — a coordinated foreign policy and research, development and innovation.

The Government of Antigua and Barbuda will provide complimentary accommodation for all representatives attending the meeting.

A Cabinet spokesman said that, as an Associate Member State, it is anticipated that attendance by Minister Fahy, who is accompanied by Cabinet Secretary Derrick Binns, will provide Bermuda with invaluable insight on the way forward for the Caribbean community as a whole as well as an open arena for information sharing.
