Chile recommits to CARICOM
CHILE has signalled its recommitment to CARICOM and the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA).
President of the South American republic Michelle Bachelet announced the continued partnership with the region yesterday as she addressed the media at CDEMA headquarters in Lower Estate, St Michael.
“We have ratified our commitment to the CARICOM and to CDEMA to continue working in areas that Chile has had experience and also in areas we can share experience like how we manage and deal with the consequences of climate change… How we also can share experiences on earthquake, tsunamis and the response to that,” Bachelet said following a tour.
The president also noted there were to be two projects in the arrangement between Chile and CDEMA’s 18 members. (AD)
