By Zoila Palma: The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) is a grouping of twenty countries: fifteen Member States and five Associate Members.
July 4th was commemorated as CARICOM Day. CARICOM day came into effect on July 4, 1973 with the signing of the Treaty of Chaguaramas by Prime Ministers Errol Barrow for Barbados, Forbes Burnham for Guyana, Michael Manley for Jamaica and Eric Williams for Trinidad and Tobago.
In 2002, the treaty was revised to allow for the eventual establishment of a single market and a single economy.
In 1972, at the 7th CARIFTA heads of government conference, they decided to establish the Caribbean Community and Common Market (CARICOM).
The Agreement was approved at the 8th Heads Conference in Georgetown, Guyana.
The Agreement was signed by the then four (4) independent CARIFTA Members, Barbados, Guyana, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago, at a ceremony in Chaguaramas, Trinidad, on July 4, 1973. It became effective for them in August 1973.
The Agreement became known as the Treaty of Chaguaramas and July 4 has been commemorated as CARICOM Day.
