Swedish Ambassador Bengtcen meets PM Browne, discusses effects of climate change

 In a pivotal diplomatic engagement on Thursday, Ambassador Anders Bengtcen held high-level discussions with Antigua and Barbuda Prime Minister, Gaston Brown and the Minister of the Environment, Sir Molwyn Joseph. The discussions focused on marking an important step in bolstering relations and potentially addressing environmental concerns between the two countries.

Building on their discussions, a significant topic of the meeting centered on the unique vulnerabilities faced by small island states in the Caribbean. The increased frequency of hurricanes in recent years has repeatedly struck a devastating blow to these nations, necessitating immense financial investments in reconstruction and resilience efforts.
