The High Commissioner of Antigua and Barbuda in London, H.E. Dwight Gardiner, together with a delegation of senior officials from the Antigua and Barbuda Ship and Yacht Registry, visited the Director on 28 November 2023. They were also joined by a representative of the West Indies Oil Company Ltd, which is a contributor to the 1992 Fund for the State.

It was a very useful meeting which focused primarily on enhancing cooperation between the IOPC Funds and the State.  They discussed the Director’s recent participation in the very successful Regional Meeting of Directors/Heads of Maritime Administrations (DIHMAR) of the Caribbean, which was held in St. John’s, Antigua and Barbuda in June 2023. This prompted a wider discussion on the importance of conducting outreach activities within the Caribbean region in general.

The Director also explained the various IOPC Funds’ training activities and services available to Antigua and Barbuda as a 1992 Fund Member State, including both in-person and remote events, such as the IOPC Funds’ Annual Academy, the webinar series as well as customised workshops and online training sessions.
