bulletPrime Minister Dr. Kenny Anthony will chair the Summit.
bulletQuite a number of important dignitaries are expected to visit the island for the summit.
bulletA number of protocols amending the Treaty of Chaguaramas to move the region closer towards the realization of a single Market and Economy will be signed during the summit.
bulletOf great importance is that the hosting of such a meeting will cost taxpayers quite a bit of money. It is therefore imperative that the public is given an account of how their money is being spent and to be made aware of Government’s preparation for the conference.
