CARICOM plans for 2013
Sat, December 29, 2012 - 12:32 PM
GEORGETOWN, Guyana – Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Secretary General Irwin LaRocque says restructuring the Guyana-based Secretariat will be among his priorities in 2013.
Revamping the administrative arm of the Community was one of the recommendations of the Landell Mills Consultancy, and regional leaders had mandated a Strategic Plan and Change Process to effect the transformation.
According to a CARICOM statement, LaRocque has indicated that implementing the plan would be undertaken during the new year.
“We have already lined up the necessary resources to get it done and I intend to start in earnest the Change Process or the Transformation Process that our heads have mandated,” he said, noting that with the assistance of a foreign donor, “we have been able to engage a change facilitator who will be advising me on the way forward.
“But the change process and the leadership of the change process rest with me. So it’s going to occupy a significant amount of my time,” he added.
LaRocque said that the change process would not be confined to the Guyana-based Secretariat. (CMC)
