Guests were welcomed by Ambassador Newry, who noted that members of the CBC have been the “best advocates” in Congress over the years for CARICOM countries.

“Over the years we have been able to forge a relationship that produced tangible results that have been beneficial to our region,” Dr. Newry said.

Ambassador Altidor also gave welcoming remarks, followed by brief remarks by legendary Congressman Charles Rangel, a founding member of the Congressional Black Caucus, who is now serving his 23rd term in Congress as the Representative for New York’s 13th District.

Congressman Rangel described the reception as “something that is so important to all of us.”

“Whatever problems we have, we have a culture that we share with each other,” he said, adding that during his recent meeting with CARICOM leaders in Jamaica, “our great President Barack Obama put forth some good ideas that we can work on.”

Congresswoman Frederica Wilson, who represents Florida’s 24th District that includes the southern parts of Broward County and the eastern parts of Miami-Dade County, also brought brief remarks.

She noted that she is very proud of the fact that she has Bahamian heritage.
