Quasi Cabinet – Portfolio Allocation

Heads of Government have also established a Quasi-Cabinet arrangement with a view to further advancing specific issues/areas within the Community.  The decision to establish the Quasi-Cabinet was taken at their Seventh Special Meeting (October 1999, Trinidad and Tobago), convened to deliberate on a Vision for the future of the Region.  Within the Quasi-Cabinet, individual Heads of Government have responsibility for critical areas of Community Development.

The Quasi-Cabinet Portfolio allocation is set out overleaf.

As part of efforts to strengthen the Quasi-Cabinet functioning, Heads of Government undertook a review of the Portfolio allocations in July 2010, at their Thirty-First Regular Meeting held in Jamaica.For more information click here
