The President of the Dominican Republic, Luis Abinader, concluded tonight his participation in the meeting with the countries of the Caribbean Community (Caricom), in Bahamas, where they discussed issues of common interest such as energy and food security.
The President’s press office said that the participants also analyzed the political and insecurity situation in neighboring Haiti, as well as access to international financing.
He added that also present was the Vice President of the United States, Kamala Harris, who welcomed the continuation of discussions with Caricom members on issues examined in the Caricom-US 2023 strategic dialogue, including the climate crisis.
Before starting the meeting of the integrationist bloc, the dignitary met with Dominicans residing in the Bahamas, whom he urged to maintain good behavior in that country and to put the name of the Dominican Republic on a high level.
Abinader, invited to the meeting in Nassau, stressed to his countrymen the importance of having a formal representation there, first with a consulate and then an embassy, given the number of citizens of Santo Domingo settled in that territory.
Also, he pointed out, taking into account that commercial relations between the two nations could have a greater volume of exchange in the future.
At the time of writing this note, the presidential press had not offered new details on the results of the meeting.
