Belize's Prime Minister, John Briceño, has traveled to Nassau, Bahamas to attend the 44th Regular Meeting of the Conference of Heads of Government of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM). The meeting will cover several critical topics, including the implementation of the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME), climate change and financing, agriculture, and food security. CARICOM members have already passed 57% of the target to reduce the region's food import bill by 25% by 2025, and a report will be presented on the work being done in this regard. The meeting will also include engagements between the Heads and special guests, including the Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, the Director-General of the World Trade Organization (WTO), Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, and other representatives. Additionally, plans for CARICOM's 50th anniversary Golden Jubilee celebrations, which will culminate with the next Heads of Government meeting in July, will be discussed.
