Plans for Increase in Trade and Cooperation

Keith Mitchell

Among the other areas of focus is an aim to bolster trade and investment between CARICOM and Mexico, through investment promotion agencies.  Likewise, the announcement of a high-level private/public sector meeting among CARICOM member states was made.  That gathering will be held in Grenada in December and will feature billionaire investor Richard Branson of Virgin Group.


Dr. Keith Mitchell, Prime Minister of Grenada

“We will seek to reinforce investment and trade between Mexico and the Caribbean region through strategic opportunities led by Pro Mexico and investment promotion agencies in the Caribbean.  We also agreed that our foreign ministers will meet to consider a road map to look at the new forms of cooperation which will enhance and accelerate development in our community.  And finally, colleagues I just want to inform you that we have discussed, the region has discussed and I personally have raised it with the president of an important meeting of the private and public sector interest led by Richard Branson which will be held in Grenada from the fourth to the sixth of December, 2017.  In discussing with the president he indicated after we asked him to that he will do everything possible to have a high level delegation, if possible himself being there.  So we look forward President, to this and we want to thank you again for this excellent meeting that we’ve had as brothers and sisters of this region. Thank you.”
