SAN JUAN – Representatives from Barbados, Dominica, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago will make presentations during a meeting this week in Kingston between Caribbean Community leaders and U.S. President Barack Obama.

“This is an important summit. President Obama, by coming to us, is signaling the continuing interest of the USA in constructive engagement in the Caribbean,” St. Kitts Prime Minister Timothy Harris said.
