President Xi offered a vision of the Belt and Road Initiative that inspires confidence in us, especially as small island developing states.

Facing challenges such as global warming and lack of development financing, we in the Caribbean region welcome the opportunities presented by the initiative.

President Xi must be commended for his visionary leadership and his boldness in offering a new path for a brighter and shared future.
