A team from the CARICOM Secretariat met members of the CARICOM Poultry Association (CPA) to ascertain how the two sides could work together to achieve the goals of the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME). The CPA’s mandate is to promote the socio-economic development of the Region through the development, growth and expansion of the Caribbean poultry industry and to create linkages.
