The Caribbean Region Quarterly Bulletin provides economic conjunctural and structural information about this particular region. This issue highlights the high debt ratios and fiscal concerns that continue to push for more structural fiscal reforms in Jamaica and Barbados. Meanwhile, Guyana and Suriname will widen their fiscal deficit as a result of increasing public investment. There are some indicators of slow growth recovery in The Bahamas and Trinidad and Tobago.
