At the Forum, the UK and Caribbean Ministers are expected to discuss climate change, security and justice, economic development, energy and food security and education.

 

Foreign Office Minister Meg Munn said:

 

“2008 marks the 60th anniversary of the arrival of the Empire Windrush in Tilbury, bringing almost 500 passengers from Jamaica to start a new life in the UK.  This year we have been celebrating this landmark event and the valuable contribution that Caribbean communities have made - and continue to make - to life in this country.

 

Underpinned by strong people-to-people links, the British and Caribbean governments enjoy close and friendly relations.  The Forum is an important tool for maintaining and deepening these relationships, providing us with a unique opportunity to share perspectives on some of the most important issues and problems that face all our societies today.”
