The 18-member Network of Caribbean Chambers of Commerce (CARICHAM) is expressing “heartfelt sympathy” to the people of The Bahamas as that nation begins to count its losses from Hurricane Dorian.
The Group said it extends “solidarity to our CARICHAM Colleagues at the Bahamas Chamber of Commerce and Employers Confederation.” It says the vast damage caused as a result of Hurricane Dorian is heart-breaking. “Tragically, this underscores the fact that the effects of climate change are real and that the Caribbean is extremely vulnerable to those effects.”
The group of Chambers of Commerce said they “are reminded that we are still in the most active period of the hurricane season. As such, we encourage all our Caribbean residents and businesses to take adequate measures to strengthen processes and assets to mitigate to the best of their ability the potential damage based on the risks that we are still facing.”
CARICHAM is a network of 18 Chambers of Commerce in the Caribbean with the aim to advocate and create enhanced value for members of the respective chambers.
