Bryan Hopes To ‘Fortify Future of Caribbean Economy’ By Meeting Bill Clinton in Puerto Rico

SAN JUAN – Governor Albert Bryan, Jr. will join President Bill Clinton and Clinton Foundation Vice-Chair Chelsea Clinton for the third meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) Action Network on Post-Disaster Recovery in Puerto Rico tomorrow. 

The Action Network brings together leaders in government, business, and civil society to develop strategies and solutions to address hurricane recovery needs facing the region, while laying the foundation for a more resilient future.

“I am looking forward to joining former President Clinton, the Caribbean leaders in attendance and Clinton Foundation partners and to participate in what I believe is an important discussion about the future of the Caribbean Economy and the role of our Virgin Islands in that economy,” Bryan said. “We have an opportunity to use this recovery and rebuilding effort as a vehicle to set the course for the Virgin Islands as a key economic driver in the region.”

Bryan is scheduled to join Bill Clinton on January 30 for the closing plenary session called “Fortifying The Future of the Caribbean Economy.”

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests.

    What a joke. The Clinton foundation failed to fund so many promises they made. Who would donate to Clinton’s anymore? Hold your breath even though Clinton didn’t inhale.
