Prime Minister Andrew Holness left Jamaica this morning to lead a special Caribbean Community (CARICOM) mission to Haiti.

He was accompanied by representatives from the Bahamas, Trinidad and Tobago, and the CARICOM Secretariat

As part of this mission, Holness and the other members of the CARICOM delegation members are expected to have discussions with several critical Haitian stakeholder groups.

In March a stakeholders meeting in Jamaica is being planned to talk about the Haitian situation.

That impoverished country is plagued with gang violence and political instability.

​At the end of the 44th regular summit of CARICOM Heads of Government in The Bahamas less than two weeks ago, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau pledged financial assistance to help women and children along the Haitian border.

CARICOM chairman and host Prime Minister Philip Davis also indicated that the regional grouping had taken its moral obligation seriously as it relates to resolving the issues in Haiti.
