Today is a good day. We are happily bringing to conclusion a very worthy project with the handing over of the national maritime strategies for the seven Member States of the Regional Security System and an overarching regional strategy.
Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean States share not only historical commonalities but also economic and cultural and in several instances familial ties. The physical and geographical closeness of our islands and shared maritime space also means that we have shared security challenges such as transnational organised crime to include drugs and weapons trafficking.
These shared challenges, dictate that cooperation and information-sharing between the RSS Member States is essential for maximising maritime and port security by essentially multiplying the capabilities and resources of anyone State.
