Antigua and Barbuda Prime Minister Gaston Browne said climate change poses a significant existential threat to all small island countries in the Caribbean and around the world. In 2017, the island of Barbuda was devastated by Hurricane Irma, with nearly 95 percent of its properties damaged.

“This is not an exaggeration but a fact,” he said, hence our obligation to continue advocating for sustainable development. Browne fully supports China’s efforts to further strengthen the “Belt and Road” green development initiative. “We share a common civilization, live on the same planet and must rely on sustainable methods to pursue development,” he said.
