The extraordinary meeting was convened this Sunday by the pro tempore President of the Summit and Prime Minister of Barbados Mia Amor Mottley.

At the meeting, the representatives of the member countries will discuss and exchange experiences on COVID-19, and outline strategies to face the pandemic.

"The main objective of the meeting is to discuss and exchange experiences on the COVID-19."
 

"The emergency will not end soon, so measures against the virus must be thought through for the long term," Mottley added.
