Guyana signs new CXC, Caribbean Air Space agreements
Minister of Foreign Affairs, Carl Greenidge on Tuesday signed the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Revised Agreement Establishing the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) and the new Multilateral Air Services Agreement.
The signing was done during the Twenty-Ninth Inter-Sessional Meeting of the Conference of Heads of Government of CARICOM held in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
According to a statement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Revised Agreement seeks to update the legal structure of the CXC and contains provisions on associate membership, the security of examinations, privileges and immunities and dispute settlement, amongst others.
The Multilateral Air Services Agreement (MASA) intends to serve as a mechanism to maximize the economic and social benefits arising from aviation activities for CARICOM Air Carriers consistent with the Revised Treaty of Chaguaramas. The Agreement amends the original MASA which was opened for signature in 1996.
