[bitsontherun NeWqzL8I]

CARICOM trade ministers are once again meeting in Guyana and are looking at ways to strengthen regional trade. The meeting comes just one week after heads of government of the Union of South American States held a similar forum at Lilliendall which also examined trade issues.

CARICOM’s council for trade and economic development will wrap up its 31st discussions on Friday.

On the agenda is a wide range of issues such as the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME), Agricultural Trade, Trade in Goods and External Economic and Trade Relations. The chairperson of COTED believes that ministers should use the meeting to make decisions that will map the trade and development agenda for the region.

The Chair is hoping when the meeting concludes that ministers would be able to develop approaches and policies to address the challenges which are faced by the region.

During the Opening Ceremony a new CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME) website was also launched. The website features information on the procedures for operating within the CSME.
