Acting Head of the National Security Service VDSM Jérôme Beeldsnijder represented the Ministry of Justice at the eighth US-Caribbean Security Cooperation Dialogue in Washington, DC, last week.
The main outcome of the dialogue was to financially empower the Caribbean Basin Security Initiative (CBSI) and Implementing Agency for Crime and Security CARICOM IMPACS, and to have them enhance the (cyber) security awareness in countries, governments, and societies. The countries pledged to continue to advance critical efforts aimed at increasing the security and safety of their respective citizens, reduction in illicit trafficking, prevention of youth crime and violence. Additionally, the aim is to establish a stronger security partnership for the future.
