CARICOM Report No. 1 (2002)
Gonzales, Anthony Peter
The overall purpose of the report is to appraise progress towards deeper integration among the member states of the Caribbean Community and Common Market (CARICOM). More specifically, and with particular reference to the goals of the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME), it seeks to assess the depth of market integration and functional cooperation by examining the state of policy coordination and harmonization, the level of institutional development, and the degree of capacity sharing. The study also addresses CARICOM's pace of widening and its integration into the world economy, against the backdrop of trends in international trade negotiations.
