In his letter to the Prime Minister of the Bahamas Hubert Minnis, PM Barrow writes and we quote “As the People of the Bahamas commence to recover and reconstruct post-hurricane, we stand in solidarity with you; and further, look forward to assisting in any way we can through our National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) and through regional efforts organized by the Caribbean Community (CARICOM).”


The P.M added “The ever-increasing occurrence of powerful hurricanes in our region is a clear and present reminder that our efforts to become a climate resilient region are prudent; and rightfully ought to be accorded our highest priority.”
