British High Commissioner John Hamilton commended Antigua and Barbuda for its leadership on global issues, particularly climate change. Prime Minister Gaston Browne and Hamilton discussed shared international stances and the importance of collaboration between the two nations.

Browne emphasized the need for improved access to concessionary financing for small island developing states and the full rollout of a loss and damage fund.

Hamilton, whose tenure began before the SIT4 conference, highlighted Antigua and Barbuda’s remarkable global presence despite its small population.

He noted the country’s high engagement ranking at the United Nations, praising its significant impact on the world stage.

Prime Minister Browne expressed hope that the UK would support the capitalization and operationalization of the loss and damage fund by early 2025.

Antigua and Barbuda’s active role in international diplomacy was further demonstrated by its recent formal offer to the 55th OAS General Assembly, presented by Permanent Representative Sir Ronald Sanders.
