Chairman of CARICOM Prime Minister Andrew Holness has been expressing positive sentiments about the progress of the special meeting of the regional political Group, heading into its second and final day, Tuesday December 4.
Mr. Holness says he has been happy to see the energy and receptivity for change and the appetite to implement decisions. He was speaking in Port of Spain Trinidad and Tobago at the end of the first day of the 18th Special Meeting of Caricom.
The two-day meeting is looking at increasing the rate of implementation of the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME) and making sure the benefits are available for Community nationals. Prime Minister Holness is chairing the meeting that should today, among other things, be considering a report by former Jamaican Prime Minister Bruce Golding about the importance of CARICOM to Jamaicans.
Yesterday CARICOM Heads of Government and their representatives met with leaders of the regional Private sector and Labour unions. This was one of the suggestions made at the regular meeting of the Heads Mia Mottley, Prime Minister of Barbados who is head of Head of Government for the CSME.
