||Worrell, DeLisle (1993)
Economic integration continues to be seen as a high priority for the Caribbean region particularly now that countries much larger have seen the need for economic unions. The relative economic success of the union of the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) in contrast to the economic regression in Jamaica, Guyana and Trinidad and Tobago suggests that integration may improve economic prospects. However, there is growing frustration at Caricom's failure to mature as an economic unit. A reassessment of the Caricom experience is a first step to identifying and removing the roadblocks to further economic integration.
