The meetings, which were scheduled to take place in Barbados this week, were due to discuss tensions over the direction of the Caricom single market and external trade negotiations.

Dominca’s Roosevelt Skerrit, who is responsible for free movement within Caricom’s quasi cabinet, said the meetings should have gone ahead because of the importance of the agenda.

PM Skirret said the Secretariat postponed the meeting because some leaders couldn’t attend. The meetings will now be held in Belize in March. PM Skerrit also denied that divisions among Caricom leaders led to the postponement.
