CARICOM participates in monitoring, evaluating the CSME
From the CARICOM Secretariat
Greater Georgetown, Guyana – Caribbean Community (CARICOM) member states will be participating in a workshop for improving the monitoring, evaluating and reporting of the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME). This activity takes place in Barbados March 13-14 for National CSME Focal Points to assist in building a CSME reporting structure that is standardized and self-sustaining at all levels. Focal points would be required to compile compliance data on the implementation of the CSME regimes.
The workshop is part of a consultancy funded by the 10th European Development Fund (EDF) CSME and Economic Integration Programme.
The workshop ties in with the comprehensive review being done on the CSME, focusing on achievements, outstanding matters, bottlenecks, work in progress and matters requiring resolution. It is necessary to provide the community with reliable data on the usage of the CSME and national focal points are key to process. Fourteen people are scheduled to participate in the workshop, which is also a forum to share best practices on the various elements of the CSME.
The activity takes place at the Radisson Aquatica Resort in Carlisle Bay, Aquatic Gap, St. Michael, Barbados.
