5th CARIFORUM meeting
Kozel Fraser (Caribbean Policy Development Centre / Co-Chair of the CARIFORUM-EU Consultative Committee):
For me, it was just a fantastic day of deliberations. This session was a super model of collaboration between CARIFORUM and the EU. We achieved consensus on a lot of issues but we’ve also been able to articulate real deep-rooted development counselling for both of our regions.
Brenda King (EESC / Co-Chair of the CARIFORUM-EU Consultative Committee):
I thought the discussions went extremely well. The feedback was on the depth of the knowledge, and hence the richness of the debate that we had today. So, I hope we’ve done a good job and reflected that in the statement that will go to the Trade and Development Committee on Thursday.
