Report of the CARICOM Commission on the Economy: « Caribbean 9.58 ». Speeding up the Caribbean. Draft

12-Point Action Plan in Response to the COVID-19 Global Pandemic


At the height of the first wave of the Global Pandemic of COVID-19, the CARICOM Commission on the Economy met virtually to discuss what the Commission would recommend to CARICOM Heads of Government as the best “collective” response to the pandemic, drawing on what was then our draft report for the region’s long term growth strategy and direction. Our focus was on what could we do now, given all of the constraints of operating in the environment then, that could have an immediate impact on the region, as well as being consistent with where we need to go in the long-run.

Note: Members of the CARICOM Commission on the Economy: Avinash Persaud (Chair), Chester Humphrey, Ngozi Ikonjo-Iweala, Damien King, Pascal Lamy, Gregory McGuire, Roger McLean, Wendell Samuel, Paul Scott, Therese Turner-Jones.
