Minister and C.E.O. of Foreign Affairs at CARICOM Virtual Meeting

The forty-eighth Meeting of the Caribbean Community Council of Ministers convened virtually today, under the chairmanship of Minister of Foreign Affairs Eamon Courtenay.  Key issues discussed were the Plan of Action for CSME Implementation and the continued reform of the CARICOM Secretariat.  Ministers recognized the need for greater collaboration with public and private partners in addressing the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on global production and the surge in freight rates and the consequent effects on consumers and businesses alike.  The council noted the continued deteriorating political, security and humanitarian situation in Haiti, and renewed the community’s willingness to assist Haiti with a view to restoring a sense of safety and security to the country.  Ambassador Amalia Mai, Chief Executive Officer in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, updated the council on the preparations for the Thirty-Third Inter-Sessional Meeting of Heads of Government of the Caribbean Community. This meeting is scheduled to be held in the island town of San Pedro from February twenty-eighth to March first, 2022.  C.E.O.
