Canada-Caribbean summit in Ottawa continues with focus on investment

OTTAWA — Meetings continue today in Ottawa as leaders from across the Caribbean touch base on how Canada can help create a safer, greener world.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has welcomed a dozen leaders from across the Caribbean for a two-day summit.

Wednesday’s meetings touched on climate change, reforming financial institutions and securing Haiti from a gang crisis.

Today’s meetings aim to focus on opportunities for Canadian investments in Caribbean countries, as well as boosting trade.

The prime minister is likely to hold one-on-one meetings with some of his counterparts in between those talks.
