PM, Symmonds to meet with Macron


Share post:

Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley and Senior Minister Kerrie Symmonds are heading to the City of Lights.

The two will be heading to Paris, the capital of France, in the coming days to meet with that country’s President, Emmanual Macron.

Mottley and Symmonds will meet with the French leader to further discuss what part the G7 country can play in formulating the Bridgetown Initiative, which was recently adopted by the CARICOM Heads of Government when they met in The Bahamas last month.

“President Macron has urged that he be allowed to form part of a cooperative agreement with Barbados so that there can be a summit, allowing him to use his global reach as a G7 leader to help us advance the Bridgetown Initiative,” Symmonds revealed to MPs in the Lower House. He was giving an overview of the work of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade in the Estimates yesterday.

“By no stretch of the imagination could we have envisaged that this type of relationship would have been fostered for this country ten years ago,” the minister added. (BA)
