SG shortlist


Share post:

BARBADOS WILL HOST two important meetings over the next few weeks, one to select a new CARICOM Secretary General and the other to look into the impasse between Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago over the latter’s refusal to grant REDjet permission to fly into the twin-island republic.
The outgoing CARICOM chairman, Prime Minister of St Kitts and Nevis Dr Denzil Douglas, addressing the closing ceremony of the 32nd Heads Of Government Conference yesterday, said five candidates had been shortlisted for the position of Secretary General.
“We are also closer to the appointment . . . with interviews of the shortlisted candidates, five of them, by the bureau of Heads of Government scheduled within the next two weeks.
“Following those interviews, an appointment will be announced in short order from the secretariat on behalf of the Heads of Government,” Douglas said.
The post has remained vacant since the end of December last year when Sir Edwin Carrington stepped down after 18 years.
