Premier and Minister of Finance Honourable Andrew A. Fahie is attending and participating in the sixth meeting of the Caribbean Development Roundtable and the twenty-eighth session of the Caribbean Development and Cooperation Committee (CDCC) of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) today.
Good morning to all. I am delighted to greet you the educators this morning as we get ready to open our schools for the 2020/2021 academic year. Three years ago yesterday, Hurricane Irma unleashed unprecedented destruction. The fact that we are still on the land of the living is a testament to God’s faithfulness to us. I am grateful to God for his guidance and protection over the past three years. Tough times don’t last, but tough people do. I thank God that he blessed us with resilience.
