CARICOM Heads of Government, heads of regional institutions, and representatives of non-governmental organisations and the public and private sectors, are expected in Barbados next week for a two-day Convocation on the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME).
The meeting will take place on October 9 and 10, at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre, Two Mile Hill, St. Michael, under the chairmanship of Prime Minister David Thompson, Lead Head of Government with responsibility for the CSME.??
Among the items to be discussed are the status of the implementation of the Single Market, including a review of the schedule of free movement of persons, and contingent rights.
The establishment of the single economy will also be examined, with emphasis being placed on the macro-economic policy framework and the creation of integration support institutions.
In addition, there will be an open forum at which all stakeholders attending the meeting will be given an opportunity to share their views on the CSME.
The decision to convene the Convocation was made in July of this year at the 30th CARICOM Heads of Government Meeting in Guyana.
