The SIDS4, organized by the United Nations every decade, brings together leaders from 39 independent States and 18 Associate Members of United Nations regional commissions, as well as other world leaders, officials, and experts from the private sector, academia, and civil society.

The conference aims to address the unique challenges faced by Small Island Developing States (SIDS).

The conference will cover a wide range of critical topics, including climate change, biodiversity loss, ocean conservation, disaster risk reduction, access to finance, debt sustainability, and the overall sustainable development of SIDS.

The outcome of SIDS4 is expected to be a comprehensive plan of action offering solutions to the unique challenges of SIDS and a new 10-year framework for international cooperation and support.

This event is crucial as it provides an opportunity for leaders and stakeholders to work towards a more sustainable, prosperous, and resilient future for SIDS under the theme “Charting the Course Towards Resilient Prosperity.”

During Prime Minister Pierre’s absence, Senior Minister Hon. Stephenson King will act as Prime Minister and Minister for Finance, Economic Development and the Youth Economy, and Minister for Justice and National Security.

  1. Fat Albert you are back in the drivers seat for a day….hey hey hey just wait until the guys down by the junkyard hears about this. Do something executive like execute a warrant on certain media houses, make use of your time.

  2. GREAT!, you get a chance, you get a chance, you get a chance and even you get a chance to head the country while you are part of my regime!

  3. That’s all you will get King Cobra. Acting for ONE day. Take your chance and run with it because your partner in crime, the Pitbull will never have that privilege.

  4. Although King has more experience than Guy Joseph, Tropical Trump never put him in charge when he was globetrotting all over the world on the tax payers money . They never enacted a minimum wage but still find that 6:50 is not enough . They will remain in opposition for the next 20 years …..
