CARICOM has appointed an Eminent Persons Group (EPG) to represent the regional body to extend the Community’s Good Offices to the Government of Haiti and Haitian stakeholders.
The three-member group consists of former Prime Minister of The Bahamas, Perry Christie, former Prime Minister of Jamaica, Bruce Golding, and former Prime Minister of Saint Lucia, Dr Kenny Anthony.
According to a CARICOM statement on Friday morning, "The Group will initiate and oversee the Community’s provision of Good Offices support in designated priority areas, including security, governance, the electoral process, and long-term development planning and advocacy. They will also liaise with key international partners and agencies."
A Technical Team, comprised of experts from CARICOM Member States, the CARICOM Secretariat and regional specialised agencies, will support the Group.
