WHO WE ARE

The CARICOM Caucus is a diplomatic representative body of CARICOM Ambassadors assigned to the capital of the United States. These Ambassadors work together to facilitate the effective coordination of activities among the CARICOM Member States in Washington D.C.

 

The arrangement mirrors the structure of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) quasi cabinet, following the same rotation for community leadership. Ambassadors and their staff work to establish consensus of diverse opinions and expertise that may exist within the group on matters considered by the Caucus.

 

The CARICOM Caucus in Washington D.C. is comprised of fourteen (14) Member States.

WHAT WE DO

CARICOM rests on four main pillars of action - economic integration; foreign policy coordination; human and social development; and security.  These pillars  underpin  the  stated objectives of our  Community:

 

  •  to improve standards of living and work;

  •  the full employment of labor and other factors of production;

  •  accelerated, coordinated and sustained economic development and convergence;

  •  expansion of trade and economic relations with Third States;

  •  enhanced levels of international competitiveness;

  •  organization for increased production and productivity;

  • achievement of a greater measure of economic leverage;

  • effectiveness of Member States in dealing with Third States, groups of States and entities of any description;and

  • the enhanced coordination of Member States’ foreign and foreign economic policies and enhanced functional cooperation.

The CARICOM Caucus DC works together in support these pillars
