CARICOM leaders discuss regional development issues in Bahamas

Nassau, Feb 16 (Prensa Latina) The leaders of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) are discussing in Bahamas on Thursday development issues for the regional bloc as possible strategies to advance in a market and economy of its own.

The 44th conference of heads of Government of the integrationist community also analyzes food security, energy, climate financing, and health, according to the official program released.

Participants in the meeting, which started Wednesday through Friday, February 17, also tackled the crises affecting Haiti, a full member of CARICOM.
