A team of officials from the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) including its President Dr. William Warren Smith, along with the management of regional airline, LIAT, will be meeting here in St. Vincent and the Grenadines this Friday to hold discussions on the way forward for the airline in 2018. The agenda will include deliberations on further reforms for LIAT.
