Caribbean could benefit from better Cuba/ US relations – Minister Carl Greenidge
(Guyana Government Information Agency) – A shift in the United States foreign policy towards Cuba could be of benefit to Guyana and the Caribbean in particular. This is according to Foreign Affairs Minister and Vice President, Carl Greenidge.
Dialogue which is very important amongst us in a region with so many challenges which are also facing the world, such as, terrorism, cybercrime and so forth, one cannot over estimate the value of greater dialogue between the countries in this wider Region,” Greenidge noted.
Cuba, it must be noted was a major player in the global tourist sector. It still has the capacity and it is also a place where technical skills are pretty high compared to many other parts of this hemisphere,” the Foreign Minister noted.
To the extent that the political dialogue facilitates greater economic cooperation, greater technical assistance and integrated and larger markets, Guyana stands to benefit, and the rest of the Region will benefit from that enhancement of the relationship with the US,” Greenidge said.
