Trinidad and Tobago to Host Forum on Caribbean’s Future

SAN JUAN – Trinidad and Tobago is set to host the May 5-7 Forum on the Future of the Caribbean, which will include heads of governments, business leaders and academic experts to discuss poverty, inequality and resource mobilization in the region.

“We need disruptive thinking and bold action if we are to create a resilient and international Caribbean future,” Trinidadian Foreign Minister Winston Dookeran said in a statement published Monday by the Caribbean Community.

The conference in Port-of-Spain is to be co-hosted by the foreign ministry and the University of the West Indies in collaboration with the UN System, regional inter-governmental partners and the Commonwealth.

Forum participants are expected to “challenge each other to consider persistent development problems in new ways and identify approaches directed at widening opportunities and improving living conditions for all Caribbean citizens,” according to the statement.

Amina Mohammed, Special Adviser to the UN Secretary-General on Post-2015 Development Planning, is among the prominent speakers who will be featured at the Forum.

CARICOM includes Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, Montserrat, St. Lucia, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname, and Trinidad and Tobago.
