NEW YORK - Prime Minister Eugene Rhuggenaath during his visit to the 74th United Nations General Assembly session met with President Bill Clinton (42nd President of the United States, Founder/Board Chair Clinton Foundation) during a GCI Action Network Round Table Event.
“Thanks to President Clinton for hosting Caribbean heads of state for a private roundtable conversation along with global business and philanthropic leaders to discuss how together we can scale resilience in the Caribbean in the face of devastating climate change effects and other economic shocks that exacerbate our inherent vulnerabilities,” said the Prime Minister on his social media.
According to the Prime Minister, the priorities which were discussed - resilience, disaster recovery, economic diversification and the renewable energy transition - are more crucial than ever for the communities and they are grateful for the leadership shown by the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton Global Initiative Action Network.
“Caribbean SIDS face complex and diverse realities. While building resilience, whether it is climate, economic or human resilience, it is important that we work towards collaborative solutions and create different avenues of collaboration and support, amongst #SIDS and with regional and global partners like the Clinton Foundation.”
