It is my pleasure and honour, along with Hon Dr. Joyelle Clarke, to sit at the 77th General Debate of the United Nations General Assembly which began today in New York. We are accompanied by Ghislaine Williams and Denaula LaPlace of the Permanent Mission of St. Kitts-Nevis to the United Nations.
Dr. Clarke and I are here to participate in important side meetings related to our Government’s push toward Renewable Energy Transition and our Green Climate commitment. In particular, we will participate in a session to discuss Large-scale infrastructure projects in renewable energy and the tools and solutions to access financial capital, green investments, and public private partnerships.
Our distinguished Prime Minister, Hon. Dr. Terrance Drew, will address the General Assembly in the afternoon of Friday 23rd September.
So far this morning, we have heard from the Heads of State for Brazil, Senegal, Chile, Jordan, Columbia, and Turkey. A common theme thus far is the need for more developed nations to take greater responsibility for climate action and also in the promotion of peace through diplomacy and dialogue instead of through war.
I also got the opportunity to share greetings with Hon Ralph Gonzalves, Prime Minister of St. Vincent and Hon Gaston Browne, Prime Minister of Antigua and Barbuda.
