This Caribbean Region Quarterly Bulletin explores constraints to private sector development in the Caribbean. With economic growth weak and dependent on only a few sectors -either tourism or commodity exports- authorities in all countries aim at diversifying the economy and boosting private sector development. While the private sector in each country faces specific issues, most share challenges resulting from red tape, complicated and tedious processes and weak environments for doing business. As usual, the Quarterly Bulletin covers the economic developments in The Bahamas, Barbados, Guyana, Jamaica, Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago, and routinely includes a section on the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS).
