CARICOM secretary-general urges the public to adhere to health protocols

Posted: Friday, December 18, 2020. 1:58 pm CST.

By BBN Staff: In his end of the year message, Secretary-General of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), Irwin LaRocque urged the public to adhere to all health protocols.

“As we celebrate during the season, it is imperative that we adhere to the health protocols and maintain the discipline that will relieve the pressure on both the health and economic sectors,” he said.

 LaRocque said that  Heads of Government, Ministerial Councils, and officials ensured that other priority issues apart from the pandemic engaged their attention.

Virtual meetings intra-regionally and internationally provided the platform for advancing and protecting the Community’s interests.

“To facilitate that recovery, we have been seeking support from friendly countries for the international financial policy-making bodies to review their eligibility criteria, which bar access to development assistance, grants, and concessional financing.  At the level of Heads of Government and our Foreign Ministers, we have advocated strongly for a Universal Vulnerability Index to be used in determining access,” he added.

LaRocque says that the financial resources would be invaluable to assist in recovery from the pandemic, and the continuing battle to adapt and mitigate the effects of climate change.

He said that as challenging as 2020 has been, CARICOM has not lost the vision of what the future can be, as demonstrated by the unity on which the Community has drawn to manage the pandemic.
