Saint Lucia’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Menissa Rambally, has taken over the Chair of the Caucus of CARICOM Permanent Representatives to the United Nations for the month of July.
The Chair of the Caucus rotates monthly among the fourteen CARICOM Ambassadors.
Ambassador Rambally said that “the opportunity to preside over the deliberations of the CARICOM group is an important duty for Saint Lucia, as it comes at the time when the region is closely involved in the negotiations at the U.N. headquarters on an Arms Trade Treaty.”
The Ambassador also noted that the CARICOM Caucus will address a number of additional key issues during the month of July including the relevant agenda items on Economic and Social Development that will be considered at the 2012 session of the UN Economic and Social Council - one of the five organs of the United Nations.
