CABINET NOTES: The Minister of Foreign Affairs provided a written report to Cabinet Members on the readiness of the planners to receive the 3,000 or more delegates likely to travel to Antigua for the May 27 to May 30, 2024, International Conference on Small Island Developing States (SIDS4).

The written Report is intended for internal uses only.

The hotels and the other accommodations are fast filling-up, as the dates draw near; more sites are being examined to ensure they meet the high standards set by the Ministry.

Additional flights on the days immediately before the Conference and after the Conference are being planned.

The airlines are reminded of their promise to add flights.

Transport systems are being ironed out to allow for the smooth collection from the airport, transport to the place of accommodation, and to and from the Conference Center daily at the American University of Antigua (AUA); the system planners report that they are all falling in place.

The Conference Center itself is very close to completion and was visited by the Prime Minister, the Minister of Works, and other officials (including the Foreign Minister himself); they were satisfied that it will be ready long before the start date.

The landscaping and the carpark are also being undertaken by both the AUA and the Ministry of Works.

The field hospital is being constructed on the grounds of the AUA and will be fully staffed during the days of the Conference; that medical site is 90% complete.

High speed fiber optic lines are nearly complete to allow for high loads during the days of the Conference.
