QUESTION:

Is Jamaica a Caricom country?




ANSWER: April-28-2009 by Wellesley Gayle




Hi Shadique,

Yes indeed, Jamaica is a member of the Caricom community.

According to information on the UN's website:

JAMAICA became a member of the Caribbean Community and Common Market (CARICOM) on 1973 August 1 when the Government, together with the Governments of Barbados, Guyana, and Trinidad and Tobago signed the Treaty of Chaguaramas which established the Organisation.

The main purpose of this coming together of the Caribbean nations is enshrined in the Mission Statement of CARICOM:

"To provide dynamic leadership and service in pursuit of regional integration through the timely development and operation of Community structures and programmes which provide for effective decision-making and implementation, create and strengthen linkages among Governments, Organisations and people of the Caribbean Community and which improve the quality of life and contribute to the attainment of a viable and sustainable Community."

The Organisation has three main objectives:

  1. economic co-operation through the Caribbean Common Market;
  2. co-ordination of foreign policy among the independent Member States; and
  3. common services and co-operation in functional matters such as health, education and culture, communications and industrial relations.

More detailed information on the Organisation can be obtained from the web site of the Caribbean Community.
