Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre has highlighted the urgency of confronting the challenges faced by the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) amid work towards a more integrated region.

” As we work towards a more integrated region, the polycrisis of this century seeks to undermine our development and future prosperity,” Pierre observed.

“Therefore, it is imperative that the work the CARICOM must undertake in the areas of border and citizen security, climate resilience, loss and damage recovery, food security, and sustainable development be deliberate and timely,” Pierre wrote on Facebook.

“Our engagements with our transnational friends and international organisations signalled the urgency of now in confronting many of these challenges which are not of our own making; the lives of our people are at stake, and therefore, we must act,” the Saint Lucia Prime Minister stated.

He described himself as a proud regionalist, born and educated in the West Indies.

And the Saint Lucia Prime Minister said he would continue the work of the visionaries who, 50 years ago, embarked on the journey of a borderless and integrated region.

Pierre observed that, along with his colleagues, he looked forward to strengthening regional institutions to benefit the people of ‘this Caribbean Civilisation.’

“50 years from now, when the CARICOM time capsule has been opened, I trust that its contents find us to have been faithful stewards to our commitments of a robust and resilient Caribbean Union,” he declared.

Pierre was among the leaders attending the 45th Regular Conference of Heads of Government of CARICOM held from 3- 5 July 2023.

In acknowledgment of the 50th Anniversary of signing the Treaty of Chaguaramas in 1973,  Trinidad and Tobago hosted the summit.

  1. The politicians are the biggest challenge facing caricom. Plain ole garbage we have in the region.

  2. The emperor has no clothes..
    He should worry about St Lucia and the St Lucians, mainly the people who is currently working for SLAVE Wages…PM please focus on St Lucia and move on, let the other Island’s handle their affairs and you handle OURS..
    Stop following the lost sheep..

  3. One challenge that I think is being ignored is the need to help Caribbean people to live healthy lives. The economic cost of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) is a major challenge. Associated with it is how to communicate to the Caribbean public the importance of making healthy choices so that quality of life can be significantly improved.
