Since Prime Minister, Gaston Browne, announced his intention to lower intraregional travel taxes as a means of boosting movement throughout CARICOM, the process has been moving along slowly.

The government has insisted that patience must be exercised in this regard – due to the complex nature of the process – but there are concerns that its implementation may not start anytime soon, given the impact of the ongoing pandemic.
