During her visit, PDAS Chung accompanied by US Ambassador to Grenada, Linda Taglialatela, and US Embassy Grenada Principal Officer Stephen Frahm, met with Dr the Honourable Keith Mitchell, Prime Minister of Grenada. During the meeting, they discussed how the United States could encourage increased engagement to enhance regional security cooperation, advance democratic principles, and increase trade and investments in Grenada.
PDAS Chung ended her visit by participating in an International Women’s Day event hosted by the US Embassy at the TA Marryshow Community College. Hon. Delma Thomas, Minister of Social Development, Housing & Community Empowerment joined PDAS Chung and Ambassador Taglialatela on a panel where they discussed the theme of Balancing Gender Inequality.
