Brit Talk Caribbean 2030

Second British Talk in Havana.

The British Embassy in Havana has recently started a series of talks on different topics including the things that unite Cubans and Britons and the issues of common interest. The first talk offered by Lord David Triesman, former President of the Football Association in England took place early this month and was an excellent opportunity to know about his experiences over his time at that organisation.

The topic of the second presentation was ‘Caribbean 2030- future challenges’ by Ms. Elena Napoles, former Chevening scholar and participant in the Wilton Park conference ‘Caribbean 2030: new thinking for a new generation’. H.E Mr. Dexter M. Rose, Ambassador of St. Vincent and the Grenadines and Ms. Donna Michelle Forde, Chargé d’Affaires of the Embassy of Barbados in Cuba were also part of the panel and provided a fascinating input to the discussion. Both Cuban and British attendees had the opportunity to ask questions and share their views about such an important topic.
