The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) in July 2003 celebrated 30 years of the signing of the Treaty of Chaguaramas. We will look at 30 years of CARICOM in synopsis, the Origins, Achievements and its Future. The Rt. Hon. Owen Arthur , Prime Minister of Barbados, in giving an overview of the CARICOM Single Market and Economy, stated that at the end of the day, the CSME was intended to give rise to more competitive economies and its implementation must be guided by the precept that it was enterprises and not Governments which competed. “We must use the CSME therefore to evolve more competitive companies.” He quoted former Jamaican Premier Norman Manley in pointing out that “great causes are not won by doubtful men”. Prime Minister Arthur added that “now is not the time to doubt ourselves.”
