CARIBBEAN MINISTERS ATTENDING UK-CARIBBEAN FORUM IN LONDON MEET PM GORDON BROWN ? NO RESULTS FORTHCOMING OF EXCHANGE


Ministers from around the Caribbean were greeted by the PM in the garden of No 10 Downing Street today as part of the UK-Caribbean Ministerial Forum, while chance to hobnob with Gordon Brown may be appreciated – those Ministers were obviously looking for concessions and the jury is still out.

This type of Forum was established in 1998 under Tony Blair and meetings are held every two years. Ministers discussed climate change, security and justice, economic development, energy and food security and education.

Foreign Office Minister Meg Munn said the British and Caribbean governments enjoy close and friendly relations.

The Forum is an important tool for maintaining and deepening these relationships, providing us with a unique opportunity to share perspectives on some of the most important issues and problems that face all our societies today.”

Dignitaries attending included the Prime Ministers of Antigua & Barbuda and St Lucia, and the Deputy Prime Ministers of the Bahamas and Jamaica. Hon Chris Sinckler MP, Foreign Minister of Barbados, also attended. Other countries in the region were represented at Ambassadorial level.
