St. Vincent and the Grenadines Prime Minister, Ralph Gonsalves on Monday urged fellow Caribbean Community (Caricom) leaders to stop lamenting about the impact of Britain’s exit (BREXIT) from the European Union (EU) and instead explore available opportunities as a result of that move.
Gonsalves said there was no room for Caricom to join in the “hysteria” about BREXIT. “We have embraced the hysteria rather than saying this BREXIT contains within it possibilities, opportunities and we must look for them rather than to bemoan what has happened. That is not going to get us anywhere,” he told the opening of the 37th regular Caricom Summit.
The long-serving St. Vincent and the Grenadines Prime Minister argued for the regional grouping to accelerate its work in the development of the Caricom Single and Market and Economy (CSME).
