Special Advisor Joseph Salazar Travels To Barbados

Vice President Harris’s Special Advisor for the Western Hemisphere Joseph Salazar is currently in Barbados for a two-day visit from March 16-18.  His trip will focus on the United States’ commitment to addressing the global climate crisis and follows the launch by Vice President Harris of the U.S.-Caribbean Partnership to Address the Climate Crisis 2030 (PACC 2030).  In June 2022, Vice President Harris launched PACC 2023, which is a comprehensive, adaptive, and goal-oriented approach to support our Caribbean neighbors in addressing energy security and climate adaptation and resilience with the urgency these challenges demand.  While in Barbados, Special Advisor Salazar will meet with Deputy Prime Minister Hon. Santia Bradshaw, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade Hon. Kerrie Symmonds, and Minister Hon. Ryan Straughn, Minister in the Ministry of Finance.
