ST JOHNS---Jamaica s Prime Minister Portia
Simpson Miller has encouraged fellow heads
of government of the Caribbean Community
(Caricom) to make the region s voice heard
in relation to issues facing Small Island
Developing States (SIDS), climate change
and the Post 2015 Development Agenda.
Simpson Miller said the regional grouping
must send a clear and unified message on
these issues considering the commonality
among the three processes, noting that Cari-
com needs to ensure that the opportunity
provided by the confluence of these processes
is seized in a timely manner.
The prime minister was speaking during
the businesses session of the 35th Meeting
of Caricom Heads of Government at the San-
dals Grande Antigua Resort in Antigua and
Barbuda on Wednesday.
She recommended that Caricom issues a
clear statement articulating the priorities of
the region to inform member countries par-
ticipation in the three processes and endorsed
the call by other member states that the
Caricom community speak with one voice
to the international community and devel-
opment partners to ensure that the upcoming
Sustainable Development Goals and Post-
2015 Development Agenda fully reflect the
priorities of SIDS.
The Jamaican prime minister commended
the work of the Regional Task Force looking
at these matters and signalled that Jamaica
stands ready to provide any technical support
as the region pushed for the advancement
of issues of interest to SIDS on the global
Caricom member states are now preparing
for discussions on the sustainability and
unique vulnerabilities of SIDS at the Third
International Meeting on SIDS to be held in
Samoa, September 1-4 this year.
