The leaders of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas, the Dominican Republic, the Republic of Haiti, Jamaica, and St Lucia are meeting with the President of the United States today.

President Donald J Trump will welcome the leaders for a meeting at Mar-a-Lago, his home in Florida.

“President Trump’s meeting with the Caribbean leaders will reaffirm our strong friendship with and commitment to these countries, and signal the importance of the Caribbean to the hemisphere. The President will discuss his vision for our diverse relationships in the Caribbean and the potential opportunities for energy investment.

The President looks forward to working with countries in the region to strengthen our security cooperation and counter China’s predatory economic practices. The President will use this meeting as an opportunity to thank these countries for their support for peace and democracy in Venezuela.

“The United States remains a good friend to the Caribbean and seeks to build on a proud legacy as the region’s partner of choice,” a release from the White House said.
