EU-Cariforum: Success of Regional Social Dialogue

The European Commission has commended the regional social dialogue project, aimed at strengthening cooperation among Caribbean governments, labour, and business. The three-year €1,715,000 (US$ 2 million) project aims to build capacity in the 15 member states of the Caribbean Forum (CARIFORUM) to ensure that the voice of business and labour is heard in all fora where policy-related, social and economic issues are on the agenda.  The objective is to contribute to the effective implementation of the CARIFORUM-EU Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) signed in 2008. Speaking at the opening ceremony of the CARIFORUM National Bipartite Meeting at the Jamaica Employers’ Federation (JEF) in Kingston, Head of the European Union’s (EU) Section of Economics, Social Development and Trade, Achim Schaffert explained, “The EPA signed between the EU and CARIFORUM is like a state-of-the art highway offering substantial trade opportunities to access EU markets [but] we have to recognise though that it is…underutilised and we hope this will change in the foreseeable future.”
