The 36th Regular Conference of Heads of Government of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) will be held in Barbados from July 2 to 4, this year.

The Conference will start with an opening ceremony which will be addressed by Heads of Government elected since the last Conference, followed by an official reception.

On the days following, there will be business sessions and a retreat for Heads of Government. A cultural event will be hosted for Heads of Government of visiting countries and local officials on CARICOM Day, which falls on Saturday, July 4.

Fifteen CARICOM Heads of Government and the heads of five associated states and their delegations, a total of more than 150 persons, will deliberate over a range of items of importance to the region.  It is expected that the Conference will host several distinguished special guests during the period and an important symposium.

Barbados assumes the chairmanship of CARICOM for the period July 1, 2015 to December 31, 2015, at a time when the region is going through fundamental change.

Over the next two months, Barbados’ relationship with CARICOM and the many aspects of the work of CARICOM will be highlighted. (PM’s Office/ MFA)
