CARICOM YOUTH AMBASSADOR STATEMENT – RE, THE PASSING OF DAVID THOMPSON – PRIME MINSTER OF BARBADOS
The CARICOM Youth Ambassador Corps is shocked and profoundly saddened by the passing of the Prime Minister of Barbados, the Honourable David Thompson.
In his personal and professional life, Mr. Thompson proved himself to be a champion of youth issues and played an integral role in forming several associations that inherently seek to promote positive youth development. His role in The Youth in Business Programme as well as the Barbados Youth Service is testament to this dedication.
The Caribbean Community has lost a great public servant. We would like to offer sincere condolences to the Thompson family and to the Government and people of Barbados.
