Heads of Government will also examine recommendations from a Special Meeting of the CARICOM Council for Trade and Economic Development (COTED) on Transportation.

But the continuing crisis in Venezuela is also expected to be among the other agenda items, with CARICOM leaders having been involved in several international discussions on the matter in recent weeks.
