Dr. Carla Barnet under Consideration for CARICOM Secretary General

Belize has nominated Doctor Carla Barnett, former CARICOM Deputy Secretary General, for the post of Secretary General of CARICOM. Dr. Barnett has worked across the CARICOM region during her roles as an economist, later as vice president at the Caribbean Development Bank, and as a consultant to development agencies working in the Caribbean.  In Belize, Doctor Barnett has been deputy governor of the Central Bank of Belize and was the financial secretary during Belize’s first successful debt restructuring in 2007. Under the previous administration, Doctor Barnett was vice president of the Senate and a minister of state in the Ministry of Finance. The selection of the Secretary General is expected to be announced in late April or early May after recommendations are made by the Community Council of Ministers.
