Institutions

The achievement of the Objectives of the Community, as set out in Article 6 of the Revised Treaty, requires the collective participation of all Community Institutions and Associate Institutions, in addition to the CARICOM Secretariat.

The Community Institutions and Associate Institutions – entities with which the Community enjoys important functional relationships – provide direct technical support to Member States in a range of areas. They are also critical implementing partners of the Community Strategic Plan.

The Community Institutions exist as separate legal entities with their own governance arrangements. The Secretary-General, in an effort to promote coordination and complementarity in the services which the Institutions and the Secretariat deliver to the Member States, holds annual meetings involving the Heads of Community Institutions and Associate Institutions.
