Earlier, Just over a week after Prime Minister Dr Keith Mitchell called for an annual dialogue between American policymakers and Caribbean leaders, the U.S. Vice President has confirmed that there will be an annual meeting.

When he spoke at the recent Caribbean Financial Access Roundtable in Barbados, Dr Mitchell welcomed the proposal by Congresswoman Maxine Waters for an annual US-Caribbean Banking Forum but stressed the need for a broader annual initiative with U.S. policymakers.

Dr Mitchell, therefore, welcomed the assurance from Vice President Kamala Harris on Friday that the United States is committed to tackling current challenges together with the region.
