Staff Reporter 5/28/2016 |
Jamaica's Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade will be attending the 8th Summit of Heads of State and Government of the African Caribbean and Pacific Group of States in Port Moresby next week.
Jamaican media reports, Senator Kamina Johnson Smith is on her way to Papua New Guinea.
Jamaica's Foreign Affairs Ministry says, with Jamaica assuming Chairmanship of the Caribbean Forum of ACP States on July 1, its participation in the Summit - the highest decision-making body of the ACP - takes on added significance.
Minister Johnson Smith says the Summit is an important space in which the Group will seek to further strengthen and reposition itself as a more effective international force on the global scene.
This is especially in the context of the imminent expiry of the ACP-EU Cotonou Partnership Agreement in 2020.
The Summit, under the theme: Repositioning the ACP Group to Respond to the Challenges of Sustainable Development starts next Monday. NBC news/ ONE PNG
