Meanwhile Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness has stated that he is looking forward to a “positive” response from Trinidad and Tobago to his concern about the treatment of Jamaicans by immigration officials in Port of Spain.
Holness told journalists at a press conference Wednesday night that he expects to get a report from his Trinidadian counterpart, Dr. Keith Rowley, when he visits Jamaica on a four-day trip starting July 17.
He held that the complimentary movement of labour was equal to the movement of goods if this CARICOM Single Market and Economy was going to work.
A protocol is to be developed and ratified by CARICOM states that will outline how immigration issues involving CARICOM nationals are to be dealt with.
There has been some tension between Trinidad and Tobago and Jamaica for some time sparking anti-CARICOM sentiments among citizens of both countries.
