Rasheed Griffith on the Geopolitics of Tech in the Caribbean

Rasheed Griffith sits down with Elina Noor to outline the technology landscape, competing priorities, and structural constraints in the Caribbean. Cautioning observers to see the Caribbean for what it actually is rather than what we want to see in it, he debunks assumptions about China’s presence and influence in the region through initiatives like the Digital Silk Road.

Rasheed is a non-resident Senior Fellow with the Asia and Latin America Program at the Inter-American Dialogue and Head of Operations at Merkle Hedge, a Canadian financial tech firm focused on high-frequency trading strategies in cryptocurrency markets.
