At The Opening Of The 43rd CARICOM Heads Of Government Conference, His First, Grenada’s Prime Minister, Hon. Dickon Mitchell, Issued A Call For Leaders To Move The Regional Organization Forward

PR – “Our forefathers in 1973 envisioned a region with the ability to transform the lives of its people by working together. A community that can overcome its challenges, if we, without reservation, dedicate ourselves, our time and talents to moving CARICOM forward….
Mr. Chairman, as we look toward the commemoration of our 50th anniversary. We need to redouble our efforts to finding solutions to our challenges. Let us not restrict our engagements to the members of our community, but let us with purpose, follow the path of the Caribbean Sea, like wisemen seeking a brightened star…engage all countries touched by its warm waters from Mexico to Venezuela, from Paramaribo to Port au Prince.
Let’s also my friends, bolster support for all our regional organizations, including the Association of Caribbean States (ACS ) and Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) — where CARICOM must be at  the center of enhanced cooperation for our region.”
