I would like to formally welcome you to the ribbon cutting ceremony officially opening this brand spanking new CDEMA Headquarters. Today sees the realization of one of the dreams that has been in the making for a period of over two decades, ever since the Heads of Government of CARICOM in 1991, agreed to establish CDERA as the regional agency with responsibility for disaster management. That dream was to have a home of our very own. For full speech please click here.
