Mottley Sets CARICOM Agenda For 2020


Barbados Prime Minister Mia Mottley has taken over the chairmanship of the regional integration movement, CARICOM, confident that the 15-member grouping is on the right path towards a brighter socio-economic and political future for the Caribbean.

Mottley, who officially took over the position on Tuesday and succeeds St Lucia Prime Minister Allen Chastanet, said “our very history has been one of struggle but one of success”, and it is against this backdrop that “we can take a fresh look at the path we would wish to set for ourselves and our children, using a term that is no doubt familiar to us all.

“It is my sincere wish that our approach to the advancement of our people in every country of the Caribbean Community would be characterised by a level of clarity that is usually associated with 2020 vision.”
