Abstract: 

On February 15, 2016, at its meeting in Placencia, Belize, the CARICOM Heads of Government adopted a resolution to respond and combat de-risking that is plaguing the region.  At the opening ceremony of the 27th Intersessional Meeting of the Conference of Heads of Government of CARICOM, the Region Chair of the Community and Prime Minister of Belize, the Hon. Dean Barrow, used much of his address to focus on the correspondent banking scenario and what it portended for the Community.  The matter was a key agenda item of the two-day Summit, and a Meeting of Finance Ministers.
