By BBN Staff: The Government of India has said that it will increase its presence in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) over the next five years as a part of its ongoing foreign policy.
An article published in the Financial Express, an English-language newspaper owned by the Indian Express Group, cited the declaration made by Subrahmanyam Jaishankar, India’s Minister of External Affairs a few days ago on the occasion of his government’s 100th day in office.
This week, the Government of India will participate in two sideline-summits at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York, USA: the first-ever India-Caribbean (CARICOM)
Island Summit and the India-Pacific Island Summit. At those meetings, India intends to focus on issues such as the blue economy, climate change, and partnering for development projects.
Belize will be among those at the summit, as well as Antigua and Barbuda, the Bahamas, Barbados, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, Montserrat, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Trinidad and Tobago, Suriname, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.
India has already begun making good on its word to give more attention to the region, by giving $1 million to the Bahamas in relief aid following the devastating Hurricane Dorian, which ravaged the island nation earlier this month.
