ST JOHN’S, Antigua (CMC) –St. Lucia’s Prime Minister Dr. Kenny Anthony Friday said he can’t keep coming to meetings of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) leaders where the same issues are discussed over and over again.
Dr. Anthony, in an exclusive interview with the Caribbean Media Corporation (CMC), said “maybe I am impatient, maybe we need to concede more time.
“I certainly see willingness on the part of the heads of governments to come to term with some of the issues, but I guess my impatience is I can’t come to meetings all the time and discuss the same issues, over and over and over.
“Cleary there has to be a limit for that and something has to change,” Dr. Anthony told CMC as regional leaders ended their 35th summit here on Friday.
He said while the summit here was faced with a “heavy agenda” he could not say “this has been the best ever meeting of CARICOM in recent times.
“I think there was too much recycling, recycling not just of items, not just of issues, but I get the impression that sometimes there is a lack of will to really implement decisions we have made about how we ourselves will organise the meetings, manage the meetings of heads of governments,” he said.
