Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley is urging the Caribbean countries to fight their common problems together rather than battle adversity on their own.

Limited access to capital by Caribbean people and businesses was one of those critical issues requiring a solution, she stressed.

Mottley said the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) also needed to unite and fix several other matters, including their blacklisting by international bodies, inadequate investment policies, and the CARICOM Single Market and Economy’s (CSME) shortcomings.

The Prime Minister was speaking yesterday at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre during the official opening of the Sixth Special Meeting of CARICOM’s Council For Finance and Planning (COFAP).

Her brief remarks were directed to an audience that included COFAP chairman, Antigua and Barbuda Prime Minister Gaston Browne, St Vincent and the Grenadines Prime Minister Dr Ralph Gonsalves, St Kitts and Nevis Prime Minister Dr Timothy Harris and CARICOM secretary general Irwin LaRocque. (SC)
