Monday, November 21, 2005 - Prime Minister Dr Kenny D. Anthony will on Tuesday lead a delegation of Caribbean heads of Government at a meeting with British Prime Minister Tony Blair.

The St. Lucia Prime Minister is the current Chairman of CARICOM and will, in that capacity, lead his fellow colleagues at the talks with Prime Minister Blair.

The talks, which will take place at Number 10 Downing Street, are expected to feature matters of mutual interest to the united Kingdom Government and the Caribbean Community (CARICOM).

Among the issues expected to be addressed are matters pertaining to UK-CARICOM multilateral relations, aid and trade.

However, with Britain currently holding the Presidency of the European union (EU), it is also expected that matters pertaining to EU-Caribbean relations will also be discussed.

Chief among the EU-CARICOM matters that may be discussed is the EU-Latin America stand-off at the World Trade Organisation (WTO) over bananas.

Also on the cards could be the effect of EU subsidies to European sugar producers on sugar-producing CARICOM member-states such as Guyana, Trinidad & Tobago, St. Kitts and Nevis and Surinam.

It is also expected that matters of mutual interest to the UK and the Caribbean as they pertain to the Commonwealth Heads of Government Conference due to open in Malta later this week.

Prime Minister Anthony and the other CARICOM heads of Government will join about 50 other Commonwealth Leaders at this year’s annual summit.
