The Clinton Foundation stands ready to help Guyana and the Dominican Republic push their joint agenda for a united Caribbean as well as any other matter of importance. Former U.S. President William Jefferson Clinton made this pledge during his closing remarks at the United Caribbean Forum, which was held at the Arthur Chung Conference Centre (ACCC) in Georgetown on Tuesday. The former U.S. leader was the guest of honour at the event organized by the Bilateral Dominican Republic-Guyana Chamber of Commerce in collaboration with other key stakeholders.

“I want to thank all of you who are making contributions to what I hope will be a more united Caribbean as we go forward,” said Clinton, adding, “If I or my foundation can help, we will help. If we can offer you a forum to get the message out about who you are, what you stand for, what you’re trying to do and the unity you are trying to build, we are on board with that,” said Clinton.

Founded in 2001 as the William J. Clinton Presidential Foundation and later renamed in 2013 to the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation, this nonprofit aims to empower people globally to address challenges of interdependence. Based in New York City and Little Rock, Arkansas, the foundation has been praised for its philanthropic effectiveness and enjoys bipartisan support.

Additionally, the nonprofit brings together established and emerging global leaders to create and implement solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges. These include climate resilience, health equity, and inclusive economic recovery and growth.

During his address, the U.S. leader said that for years, he has subscribed to the belief that the Americas need to work more closely together. The former U.S. leader also expressed hope that the United Caribbean forum, which is in its first edition and brought together key stakeholders from the private sector and governments of both nations, “is just the tip of the iceberg.”

He said, “I hope it will give new life to CARICOM and new life to any other organizations acting here because you have this amazing opportunity here.”

Should he be unable to return in the future, the former President urged those industry leaders present to remember the following advice: “We are almost always stronger together. We are almost always better cooperating than we are fighting… This is a big, good thing, and I hope we can give life to it after this conference.”
