GEORGETOWN, Guyana — The 15-country Caribbean Community will begin negotiating a new trade and aid pact with Canada by the middle of the year, the trade bloc said Sunday.
Known as Caricom, the group has been urged by Canada to begin discussing updates to the CaribCan agreement which is more than a decade old.
Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper is reported to have proposed an aid package worth US$600 million over 10 years.
Caricom should be ready to begin talks in June after it completes a trade and aid pact with the European Union, the bloc's Guyana-based secretariat said in a statement.
Caribbean negotiators have been holding informal talks with a Canadian parliamentary team in Barbados and Trinidad, it added.
