The Caribbean Region Quarterly Bulletin discusses recent economic developments in the 6 IDB-member Caribbean countries, as well as the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS). The countries are: The Bahamas, Barbados, Guyana, Jamaica, Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago. The regional supplement, entitled "Education in the Caribbean, a Gap Analysis", explores educational achievements in the region with a focus on existing gaps. It concludes that in spite of progress, quality and access remain a concern in many countries. In addition, it notes that the gender gap is strong as girls outperform boys at all levels of education.
