KINGSTON  United States President Barack Obama yesterday announced a US$20 million effort to jump-start private and public sector investment in clean energy projects in the Caribbean and Central America.
 
Obama made the announcement as he wrapped up a visit to Jamaica where he held bilateral talks with Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller and then met Caribbean Community (CARICOM) heads
of government.
 
“If we can lower these costs through the development of clean energy and increased energy efficiency we could unleash, I think, a whole host of additional investments and growth,” Obama said.
 
The proliferation of illegal guns in the Caribbean, trade, immigration and energy security were some
of the other topics discussed by Obama and CARICOM leaders.
