Antigua Barbuda and the Dominican Republic Strengthen Ties
The governments of Antigua and Barbuda and the Dominican Republic assessed the implementation of projects in the sectors of security, agriculture, tourism, sport and education, the local government reported today.
According to a statement issued by the Cabinet, the Minister of Tourism of Antigua and Barbuda, Asot Michael, traveled to the Dominican Republic and met with Deputy Foreign Minister José Manuel Trulli, to analyze various strategies.
Michael, who is visiting Santo Domingo to attend an investment forum, also held talks with Miguel Mejía, the Dominican holder for Regional Integration.
They discussed various development projects and the relationship of the Dominican Republic with the Caribbean Community (Caricom).
Mejia invited the Prime Minister of Antigua and Barbuda, Gaston Browne, to visit the Dominican Republic. The text does not make clear whether the two sides discussed the application of Santo Domingo to join the Caricom, which was suspended last year following the decision of the Constitutional Court of this nation that affects thousands of Dominicans of Haitian descent.
