Speeches and debates at Conference on Small Island States

Saint John, May 28 (Prensa Latina) Plenary speeches and two interactive debates are on the agenda for the 2nd day of the 4th International Conference on Small Island Developing States (SIDS), which is being held with representatives from some 40 nations in this capital.

“Charting the course toward resilient prosperity” is the event’s motto, which runs through Thursday, May 30, in Antigua and Barbuda.

Tuesday’s agenda includes a debate on revitalizing SIDS economies toward accelerated and sustainable growth.

SIDS are a group of low-lying island nations that are home to approximately 65 million people who live across more than 1,000 islands, many of them in the Caribbean.

The 39 SIDS member states represent some of the most vulnerable populations on the planet and face unique challenges.

Experts stand out that their small size, geographic remoteness, narrow resources, and export base make them vulnerable to exogenous economic, social, and environmental crises.
