EU: Three support programmes for the Caribbean

Representatives of the European Union (EU) and the governments of Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica and Saint Lucia signed agreements in support of the post-hurricane recovery and reconstruction efforts in the CARICOM Member States. The financing agreements amount to €30 million. The agreements were signed in Brussels in the margins of the second EU-CELAC Foreign Ministers Meeting, which concludes today, the Delegation of the European Union to Barbados, the Eastern Caribbean States, the OECS, and CARICOM/CARIFORUM said in a press release. Mr. Stefano Manservisi, Director-General for International Cooperation and Development, signed three new agreements with the Minister of Foreign Affairs and CARICOM Affairs of Dominica, the Hon. Francine Baron, with the Minister for Foreign Affairs of Saint Lucia representing CARIFORUM, the Hon. Sarah Flood-Beaubrun, and with the Ambassador of Antigua and Barbuda, Her Excellency Karen-Mae Hill. The Caribbean region was severely impacted by hurricanes Irma and Maria in autumn 2017. In the case of Dominica, damages and losses were calculated at 226% of GDP. The destruction on the island of Barbuda resulted in the evacuation of the entire population to Antigua.
