Caricom agencies ‘not visible’ enough
More needs to be done to inform the public about the role that regional institutions play in influencing health, finance, education and other policies.
Barbados’ Ambassador to CARICOM David Comissiong says this is even more important with the increasing challenges faced by the region.
“A lot of CARICOM remains hidden from the citizens of the Caribbean and part of the fault has to do with the CARICOM institutions themselves that don’t do enough public education and public relations to actually inform the Caribbean people about their existence and the work they are doing.
“I think our Ministry of Foreign Affairs is perhaps going to have to do some work in this respect – to make more apparent all of that subterranean structure of CARICOM that sometimes is not evident to the citizens or the news media. Our job is to make visible all of these hidden aspects of the CARICOM infrastructure,” Comissiong said. (TG)
