Vice President Kamala Harris meets with Prime Minister Mottley and Leaders of CARICOM

Barbadian Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley was among a number of CARICOM leaders who met with U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris at the White House on September 15. Vice President Harris underscored the importance of the U.S.- Caribbean relationship and the United States’ commitment to the Caribbean in the areas of energy security, development and climate finance, and food security.

The leaders also discussed ways to accelerate implementation of the U.S.-Caribbean Partnership to Address the Climate Crisis, also known as PACC 2030, which was launched at the Summit of the Americas in Los Angeles.

Vice President Harris noted in her opening remarks, “… I will say, as I have said before, the relationship between the United States and the Caribbean is based on common bonds and interests. As neighbors in the Western Hemisphere, we believe it is critical that we have a relationship that is based on close cooperation, knowing that the result of that will be our shared prosperity and security…”

Since the Summit of the Americas in June, the United States has committed $28 million to provide food security assistance to the Caribbean. The United States will continue to work together through PACC 2030 and other initiatives to promote energy security, combat climate change, bolster food security, and encourage economic prosperity in the region.

    @Lawyer, my political master!!! Are you kidding me? You write so much crap about your messiah and you have the nerve to accuse someone else of being enslaved. Man, I’m an independant trucker. In other words, I call my own shots unlike you who seem to be singing for your supper.
    You claim your eyes are wide open. May I suggest you get some glasses to correct your vision and while you’re at it, why don’t you get some hearing aids as well so you can hear what the majority of folks are saying.

    I see someone has finally woken up and I quote from their posted comment “People want to see and feel things that make a positive difference in their lives”, end of quote. That’s the message, plain and simple, not all things Doom and Gloom because that’s not true. You have to use a balanced approach for people to take you seriously. People want to know what’s in it for them personally. That’s the only way you’re going to effect change not by singing the same old song that people are tired of hearing. Failure to do so will only result in more disappointment.
    On another note, the PM doesn’t have to walk in anyones shadow. He is his “Own Man”, the leader for now of our beautiful Dominica.

      It’s your political master that brings all the doom and gloom. As far as his character is concerned, I do not agree with you either. MY eyes and ears are wide open and I suggest you stop covering yours going forward. You might be better off in the long run.

    @Admin: Even if it was “cut and paste” journalism, couldn’t you at least say … “some Leaders of CARICOM”?

    Not throwing cold water on meetings of this nature. But, nothing much comes from these meetings other than beautiful photos.

    People want to see and feel things that make a positive difference in their lives. After spending enormous sums of money from the public purse we should have something concrete to show.

    The delivery of concrete deals and agreements over photo-ops any time.

      You throw cold water on everything, not a surprise. I am wondering if you ever throw cold water on your body? What do you have to offer to your country? Nothing but trash talk everyday. Instead of spending all of your quality time everyday at a computer like a woodpecker, why don’t you invest that time in doing something good for your country that we can all talk and boast about? But no, you rather spend all that time hashing out the same shit everyday going nowhere. You remind me of myself sometimes driving through a cul de sa, a blind alley, getting nowhere.. That’s you.

    The headline says it all: Vice President Kamala Harris meets with Prime Minister Mottley and Leaders of Caricom. The tide is high and PM Mottley is moving on. She’s the number one.

    The role of a leader is to define reality and give hope. This famous quote is credited to Napoleon. PM Mottley is an honourable, pioneering leader on the world stage. For me, she defines the reality of what we’ve lost in Dominica since the days of the late Dame Eugenia.

      I love PM Mottley but she has more than a few flaws. However, she is eloquently articulate, assertive, doesn’t shy away from press conferences, and have earned the respect of many world leaders. She is a person of immense integrity and commands attention every time she speaks. Roosevelt cannot even walk in her shadow.

      When people, especially leaders pass on to the great beyond, we tend to speak about them as saints. Juanita, perhaps to your chagrin, former PM, Eugenia Charles was no great leader in my estimation. She was as politically polarizing as many leaders around the Caribbean today.

        @ Ibo France: Not to my chagrin! Every leader has flaws and I am perfectly aware that Dame Eugenia was no saint. But she had a set of strong values and a trademark style that precluded her from entering into secret and rotten deals with rogues, fly by night investors, and “bobolists”. She always put Dominica first. And like PM Mottley, she was assertive, eloquent, and knew how to act on the international stage.

      I am patiently waiting for you to quote Shakespeare as well. Why can’t you for once write something constructive and uplifting that I can learn something from? My brains are in a rut and I am waiting on you to get me out that rut. But, I can see that you are no help.

        You are making a fundamental error. Your happiness comes from inside. Never rely on anyone for your happiness. You are sure to fail most times.

        I don’t live up to no one’s expectation and I don’t expect you to live up to mind. I have no obligation to you to do just that.

        I might not know the formula for success but I sure know the one for failure. Try to please fastidious, and uninformed persons of your ilk.

        If that’s so, why do we have these leaders in the first place. Let’s save the money and distribute it amongst the most needy. Just another question for you, in your opinion does it make sense to have a PM that can’t even travel to the leading democratic countries for fear of being arrested?
