The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Secretariat will officially launch four online platforms which were developed to help make the benefits of the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME) more accessible to nationals.
According to a release from the regional body, the platforms were created with the assistance of the Tenth European Development Fund (10th EDF) Grant Agreement between the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) and the European Union (EU).
These electronic platforms are: the Labour Market Information Systems (LMIS), the Regional platform for online Companies Registries Systems (ROCRS), the Community Public Procurement Notice Board (CPPNB); and National Advertising Portals for 13 Member States; and the CARICOM Rapid Alert System for the Exchange of Information on Dangerous (non-food) Consumer Goods (CARREX) Upgraded Platform and Public Portal.
CARICOM said they are intended to provide an online database and repository of regional labour market statistics, public procurement opportunities, information on the registration of companies, business names, and other entities; and alerts and notifications on dangerous and harmful products in the community.
The launch will take place in October.
