Today, the Cabinet, which is the country’s highest executive authority, is holding its first meeting of the year after a two-week break for the Christmas and end-of-year celebrations.
Although there has been no official announcement yet about the topics that will be discussed and decided upon at the meeting, it is expected that there will be a lot on the agenda for today’s gathering.
Despite the lack of information about the meeting’s specific agenda, the public will not have to wait long to find out what decisions were made, as the traditional post-Cabinet press briefing is scheduled to take place on Thursday morning.
This briefing is an important part of Antigua and Barbuda’s governance process and has become a regular feature that attracts not only the attention of nationals at home but also that of the diaspora and others around the world.
In recent years, many Caribbean countries have also adopted this policy of transparency and openness in their governance practices and have implemented similar public engagements to keep their citizens informed about the decisions made by their leaders.
Ultimately, this approach helps to build trust between the government and its people and ensures that the public is well-informed about crucial national issues.
