    Prime Minister Andrew Holness yesterday (July 5) urged his colleague Heads of Government of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), to fully implement the Single Market and Economy, CSME.

    The Prime Minister was contributing to discussions on the CSME during the first plenary session at the 38th Meeting of Heads of Government of CARICOM in Grand Anse, Grenada.

    “The true expression of the realisation of the integration dream is to get the CSME going and we have to have the resolve as leaders to do this. It is how our people will experience true development and prosperity. And so, Jamaica wants to urge members to seriously put our efforts and commitment behind the CSME,” said Prime Minister Holness.

    Mr. Holness said regional leaders have been speaking about implementing a CSME for too long with little action.
