Barbados Prime Minister Freundel Stuart wants the people of the region to know that, when CARICOM speaks with one voice, it can be a powerful force in facilitating change, both in the region and in the international community.

His comments came as he delivered remarks on Monday at the opening ceremony of the 27th inter-sessional conference of heads of government of CARICOM in Placencia, Belize.

Referring to the vital role CARICOM played in the preparation, conduct and outcome of the landmark agreement at the 21st Conference of the Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in Paris last year, Stuart said that it was an example of what could be achieved if countries continued to find common ground.

The prime minister, therefore, urged fellow leaders to ensure that going forward all decisions made by CARICOM were both “orderly and rigorous”, so that the region’s people could fully benefit.
