Trinidad PM not attending CARICOM summit

Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley will not be attending the 33rd Caricom Inter-Sessional meeting which starts in Belize this morning – and which will be the first Inter-Sessional where regional leaders meet face to face since 2020.
Rowley’s non-attendance was confirmed by Government yesterday. The Foreign Affairs Ministry subsequently confirmed that Foreign Affairs Minister Dr Amery Browne, the Ministry’s Permanent Secretary and an officer from the Ministry’s Caricom division are representing T&T.

Caricom Secretary-General Dr Carla Barnett yesterday confirmed it’s the first Inter-Sessional where leaders are meeting face to face since 2020 due to the pandemic and it’s expected many important matters including the region’s post-pandemic economic recovery will be discussed.

It’s understood that Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness won’t be attending the meeting either. Jamaica’s Foreign Ministry is representing.

Rowley returned to T&T from Qatar last Friday night. He’s yet to speak about his Qatar trip.

The day he returned, five divers attached to Tarouba-based LMCS company disappeared when an incident occurred while they were doing underwater maintenance on a pipeline at Paria Fuel Trading Company Limited. They were sucked into the pipeline.
