CARICOM Heads Urged To Respond To Petition Against High Travel Taxes

Press Release:- Over the last two weeks, packages containing copies of the petition bearing over 20,000 signatures were dispatched to the offices of the CARICOM Heads of Government and the Secretariat in Guyana.

Also included in the packages was a letter to each Head of Government, cogently outlining the case for dialogue on the vexing issue of high intra-regional Caribbean travel taxes and fees.

To date, only the Offices of the President of Guyana, His Excellency Brigadier David Granger and the Hon. Dr. Keith Mitchell, Prime Minister of Grenada have acknowledged receipt of our communication.

Accordingly, The Citizens Against High Intra-Regional Caribbean Travel Taxes is calling on the other CARICOM Heads of Government to respond to the petition submitted to their offices.

By signing our petition, the people of the region are collectively asking to be heard on the important issue of intra-regional Caribbean travel taxes. We hope that our leaders see it fit to engage with their constituents on this important matter.
