ST.GEORGE'S, GRENADA, September 29, 2015 - GIS: “I’m delighted to be making my first visit as Prime Minister to the Caribbean, indeed the first bilateral visit by a British Prime Minister for fourteen years.

I’m coming with one clear and simple message – we would both benefit from a stronger and deeper relationship.”

"There are strong ties between hundreds of thousands of people in the Caribbean and the United Kingdom and we should invest more in our relationship for the benefit of all those people and more.

"I believe that Britain can help the Caribbean countries on their path of development - lifting people out of poverty, increasing economic growth, trade and security, and creating opportunities for young generations.

That's in your interest but it's firmly in our interest too.”

“I think there is some truth in those who say Britain has taken this relationship for granted for too long and I want to put that right.”

"Our relationship should be based on the countries we are today and the opportunities we can generate together, rather than over-relying on the historical ties of the past.”

"Britain wants to be your partner for the future, your partner of choice and I hope my visit can be the start of that."

The Prime Minister will be visiting Jamaica and Grenada this week.
