At the start of this new year, the Caribbean Basin Region is experiencing the most exciting of times. The burning question of -What is the Caribbean Basin Region’s place in the world and how are we going to get there? -, was emphatically answered by the impressive St. Ann’s Declaration, and embodied in the demonstrable and credible personal commitment of three regional Prime Ministers.
The event was the Press Conference at the close of the Eighteenth Special Meeting of the Conference of Heads of Government of CARICOM on the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME), which was convened in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago from December 3-4, 2018.
Our leaders declared that the time for action is now. And, our people have responded. The CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME) and the CARICOM Skilled Nationals Programme for the free movement of goods, skills, labour and services across the region, for the growth and development of regional economies, is on the move.
