Caricom has lost a great son

I am extremely saddened by his passing; even though he had been hospitalised, it still came as a shock.

The Carib­bean Commu­nity (Cari­com) has lost one of its truly great sons, who will always be remembered for his historic role at the landmark Grand Anse Meet­ing in 1989 where the decision was taken to significantly deepen our integration.

To his family and the Gov­ernment and people of Trinidad and Tobago, I

convey my deepest condolences.

Erwin LaRocque

Secretary-General Caricom
