09th March 2016

The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Secretariat and the Minister of Energy, the Hon. Asot A. Michael extends congratulations to Toure Forde on placing third in the Amateur Category of the CARICOM Energy Week (CEW) 2015 Photograph and Art Competition.

We are pleased to award him a Samsung Galaxy S5 Phone. The competition, which attracted entries from around the Community, sought to capture the entrants’ interpretation of the CEW 2015 theme “EMPOWERING our sustainable development.”

The Community has been celebrating CEW annually since 2011, based on a mandate from the 35th Special Meeting of the Council for Trade and Economic Development (COTED) on Energy held in Guyana, March 2011. CEW provides a platform for building awareness of sustainable energy issues across various segments of society at the national level.

The CARICOM Secretariat and the Ministry of Energy takes this opportunity to acknowledge his interest in and understanding of sustainable energy development, and encourages his continued interest in the subject area.
