St. Vincent and the Grenadines Prime Minister to Discuss International Terrorism and Caribbean Preparedness

Screen Shot 2016-06-06 at 5.32.06 PM

Thursday, 16 June | 6:00 pm | UCCI Sir Vassel Johnson Hall

Recent international events have posed considerable questions regarding global insecurity.

The multiple manifestations of this encompass radical and extreme religious world views, environmental degradation, food insecurity and the movement of peoples. Of particular urgency is global terrorism.

While it is clear that the Caribbean is not impervious to the reality of international terrorism, it can be argued that the peoples of the region do not know enough of how prepared their countries are.

In the latest installment of the UCCI Distinguished Lecture Series, Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves of St. Vincent and the Grenadines explains the nature of this reality, the extent to which Caribbean countries are affected, or might be, and their levels of preparedness. As an important player in CARICOM, the Prime Minister will outline regional plans to counter global terrorism.

Large groups are encouraged to reserve seats as soon as possible as space is limited.
