The good relations between Canada and the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) were once again demonstrated when that country made a presentation of 100,000 Canadian Dollars to assist in the work of the constitutional reform process in CARICOM Member State, Guyana.

At a simple ceremony on Thursday, 9 September, at the CARICOM Secretariat’s Headquarters in Georgetown, Guyana , H.E. Mr. Kamoji Wachiira, High Commissioner (Acting) of Canada to Guyana presented the cheque to CARICOM Secretary-General, Mr. Edwin Carrington.

The presentation was made to CARICOM as a signatory to the Herdmanston Accord and the St. Lucia Statement – agreements which arose out of attempts to settle the political conflicts following the 1997 general election in Guyana. The money will be used to aid the work of the Guyana Constitutional Reform Commission which is one of the measures agreed to under the two accords.
