British Virgin Islands: Now is the time for Caribbean to establish protocols to facilitate inter-regional travel — Walwyn

While pointing out that it can do much for ailing economies, former legislator Myron Walwyn said the Organization of the Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) and the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) should establish protocols among themselves to facilitate inter-regional travel.

He told BVI News at the weekend that the Caribbean, except for a few countries, has low coronavirus cases and this should be used to the region’s advantage, as a means to stimulate the respective economies.

“Though many countries are providing help packages for their citizens, many will not be able to keep it up for much longer as the government coffers have more going out than what is coming in. Something needs to be done to immediately address the high unemployment rates and movement of Caribbean people through the Caribbean safely can help,” he stated.
