Antigua – Barbuda to argue for climate justice at Biden summit of 40 world leaders
Antigua and Barbuda’s prime minister, Gaston Browne, says he intends to make “a robust contribution on behalf of all CARICOM countries” when he participates in the summit meeting on Climate organized by US president, Joseph Biden.
Prime Minister Browne is one of two Caribbean leaders invited by President Biden to the Summit of just 40 heads of government from around the world. Jamaica’s Prime Minister Andrew Holness is the other Caribbean invitee.
The Summit will be held on April 22 and 23 with President Biden as host. In issuing the invitation, President Biden said he was inviting the leaders of the world’s major economies as well as “heads of other countries that are demonstrating strong climate leadership and are especially vulnerable to climate impacts”.
