By BBN Staff: The heads of Government of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) met on Tuesday to continue their discussion towards initiating the economic recovery of the Region which has been devastated by the COVID-19 Pandemic.
At the 13th Special Emergency Meeting of the Conference of Heads of Government held virtually, they received an update on the Caribbean Economic Recovery and Transformation (CERT) Plan.
The plan is being devised by a regional team of experts under the leadership of the Prime Minister of Barbados, Mia Amor Mottley.
They commended the team on its work and looked forward to its completion.
The special emergency meeting was presided over by the chair of the conference, Dr. Keith Rowley, Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago and the leaders took the opportunity to discuss other urgent matters.
The Heads of Government issued three statements among which they emphasised their unswerving support for Guyana in the border controversy with Venezuela.
They also called for a global summit to address equitable access and distribution of the vaccines to combat the pandemic. The Heads of Government further denounced the unilateral declaration by the United States which designated Cuba as a state sponsor of terrorism.
“Our Heads of Government are leading the way in seeking a path to recovery from the effects of the pandemic and to continue to build the resilience of the Community. The CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME) provides a solid platform and the collaboration among the Member States, the Regional Institutions and the Secretariat which proved so effective in the Community’s relatively successful containment of the virus is another factor in our favour,” Secretary General Irwin LaRocque said.
