In an end-of-year message, the outgoing Chairman of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) has expressed confidence in the region’s ability to overcome its challenges.

His Excellency Chandrikapersad Santokhi expressed confidence while noting that CARICOM has come to the end of a year that has seen the region slowly emerge from the shadows of the adverse social and economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, the Suriname President observed that threat of the virus has not evaporated, and neither has the debt crisis nor the climate crisis.

In addition, he said the attack by Russia on Ukraine had complicated the recovery from the COVID Pandemic, slowing a return to normalcy in a Post-COVID world.

“However, we have shown that with determination, and the creativity that lies within Caribbean peoples, we can overcome the challenges that confront us,” Santokhi asserted.

Every incremental gain, no matter how small, is a step on the road to achieving our goal of a resilient, sustainable, safe and viable Community for all,” the outgoing CARICOM Chairman said.
