Efforts to boost trade-led development for CARICOM members

Staff writer | 29 Abril del 2010

ITC (International Trade Centre) and WTO (World Trade Organization) officials continue in their efforts to foster trade and trade-related development for the CARICOM (Caribbean Community), a regional organization that includes 15 of the least developed Caribbean, Central American and South American countries (Antigua and Barbuda, The Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, Montserrat, Saint Lucia, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname, and Trinidad and Tobago).

The focus of the efforts is on improving competitiveness and integration into the global trade system as a vehicle for the development of CARICOM countries. There is wide agreement regarding the general need for CARICOM members to establish consistent trade policies, a consensual regional export strategy, enhance trade promotion, and improve the existing cooperation with the private sector in order to benefit the most from market access opportunities and internationally available developmental resources.
