CARICOM Celebrates Milestone 50th Anniversary in 2023

On 4 July 1973, the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) was established to deepen regional integration. This year, the Region will celebrate 50 years since the signing of the Treaty of Chaguaramas and the accomplishments of CARICOM, which is revered as the oldest surviving integration movement in the developing world.

The milestone will be celebrated with several events under the slogan, “50 Years Strong: A Solid Foundation to Build On”.
