Last week a delegation led by Foreign Minister Fred Mitchell met with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Port of Spain on Monday 29th July. The Japanese Prime Minister was on an 11 day swing through the Caribbean to counter Chinese influence and to campaign for a seat on the UN Security Council. He called for a private meeting with Mr. Mitchell to say that he has spent his honey moon in The Bahamas 20 years ago and would like to come back. Prime Minister Perry Christie has instructed that a note be sent to the Prime Minister inviting him back with his wife as our guests. The Foreign Minister was accompanied at the summit by High Commissioner to Caricom Picewell Forbes, Unesco Ambassador Dr. Elwood Donaldson, Dr. E Monica Davis, and Honorary Consul for the Bahamas in Trinidad, Foreign Service Officers Marchea Mackey and Iesha Deveaux.
