Meeting with Allen Chastanet on CARICOM Insights
On April 17, 2024, Teri had the valuable opportunity to meet with Allen Chastanet, the former Prime Minister of St. Lucia, to discuss and gain insights into CARICOM’s best practices. This meeting provided an enlightening platform for Teri to deepen her understanding of the Caribbean Community’s workings and explore how the U.S. Virgin Islands can more effectively engage and collaborate within this regional framework. Central to their discussion was the importance of educating CARICOM members about the U.S. Virgin Islands’ identity and sharing our intertwined Middle Passage roots and aspirations within the region. Teri’s commitment to leveraging the unique offerings of the USVI on a regional scale was further reinforced through this engagement, aiming to foster greater understanding and collaboration among CARICOM nations.
