HE Ambassador Dylan Vernon, Ambassador to the EU, Embassy of Belize

The strong traditional bi-regional ties that the Caribbean and the European Union have maintained will be severely tested in the next five years as both regions pivot to adapt to new regional and global realities. In particular, the European Union is now engaged in critical reviews of its global strategic policies that will certainly have far-reaching consequences for Caribbean-EU relations in areas of political dialogue, trade and development cooperation. I will share my critical reflections on current developments in Brussels on the future of these relations and possible implications for the Caribbean, with a specific focus on independent Caribbean states in CARICOM and CARIFORUM.
