MONTEGO BAY – Caribbean Community (CARICOM) leaders ended their annual summit on Wednesday, saying they intend to revisit the governance structure within the 37-year-old grouping over the next two months.“We have just concluded three days of intensive deliberations,” said host prime minister and CARICOM chairman Bruce Golding, adding that the “heavy agenda” reflected the many ongoing issues that the Caribbean continued to grapple with.He said the meeting’s focus also reflected “the dissatisfaction that existed among many of our Caribbean people that CARICOM was not doing as much as it should” and that “it is not demonstrating the seriousness with which issues affecting the Caribbean people must be addressed”. He said the leaders acknowledged that there was an issue of governance that had to be dealt with. (CMC)
