[Caribbean National Weekly] – Guyanese Vice President and Minister of Foreign Affairs, Carl Greenidge, says more collaboration with the Diaspora is the new administration’s main priority.

Speaking during a recent diplomatic visit to South Florida, Greenidge also encouraged the community to be more proactive as partners.

The one day conference in Miami, which was hosted by the Washington, DC based Institute of Caribbean Studies (ICS) and the Greater Caribbean American Chamber of Commerce in conjunction with the Harlem Company LLC, brought together Caribbean Diaspora community and business leaders along with US elected officials, business executives and members of the academic community and media for discussions on three current issues of concern to the Caribbean Region and its Diaspora.

Titled the “Florida Conference on Current Caribbean Issues: The Diaspora Discussion”, the event was a follow up to the issues identified earlier this year during Legislative Week in Washington, DC which needs to be further addressed.
