COVID-19 has highlighted a new iteration of great power competition in vaccine distribution and commercialization. The pandemic brings to the forefront why the future of the Caribbean — with a population of almost 50 million – is critical for the United States. Tied together by geography and history, Prime Minister Keith Rowley will speak about the region’s global challenges and how resetting US-Caribbean relations can contribute to hemispheric security and prosperity.
