CARICOM Youth Ambassadors' Tribute to Prime Minister David Thompson

The Honourable David Thompson http://www.caricom.org (FP)

The CARICOM Youth Ambassador Corps is profoundly saddened by the passing of the Prime Minister of Barbados, the Honourable David Thompson.

In his personal and professional life, Mr. Thompson proved himself to be a champion of youth issues and played an integral role in forming several associations that inherently seek to promote positive youth development. His role in The Youth in Business Programme as well as the Barbados Youth Service is testament to this dedication.

Indeed, in a National address in March this year, Prime Minister Thompson again reiterated his passion to serve youth as he insightfully developed new strategies to push forward his Youth Agenda - a promise he made in 2008 to tackle and resolve issues of concern to young people.

The Caribbean Community has lost a great public servant.

We would like to offer sincere condolences to the Thompson family and to the Government and people of Barbados.
