Brief Review Of Caribbean News In 2022.


The Harris Files:  by David Harris 

December 22, 2022

Elections, the economy, and the easing of the Covid-19 protocols were among the major news events throughout the Caribbean in 2022.


On January 19, the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) led by Barbados Prime Minister Mia Mottley celebrated a landslide victory in Barbados' first general election since the island became a republic last year by removing the British Monarch as the head of state.

Mottley called the snap election in December, saying it would help promote unity as the government battled the coronavirus pandemic, which has heavily affected the tourism-focused economy.


Britain’s Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton were met by protesters calling on him to apologize for slavery when he visited Jamaica in March. An open letter from a hundred Jamaican civic and cultural leaders demanded British reparations for that past.

The Prince — who was on a Caribbean tour as part of his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II's 70th anniversary on the throne said the monarchy regrets the legacy of slavery.

“I want to express my profound sorrow, Slavery was abhorrent", the Prince said.


The president of Guyana Iraan Ali said the world’s fastest-growing economy, plans to use its newfound oil and gas wealth to fund investments in other sectors that will reduce its dependence on hydrocarbons.

“While Guyana is an emerging hydrocarbon market, our economy will not be hydrocarbon-based,” Ali told the Atlantic Council in Washington, D.C in April.


Trinidad and Tobago saw energy revenue jump more than threefold to 18.6bn Trinidad dollars (US$2.74bn) in the nine months to June 2022.

That is according to a new report from the country’s central bank, which attributes the increase to higher commodity prices.

The bank highlights that its energy commodity prices index – used to track the pricing of the country’s main energy export products – rose 73.4% year-on-year to an average of 184.27 points in the first seven months of 2022.


The ruling Dominica Labour Party (DLP) under the leadership of Roosevelt Skerrit was returned to power in the general election held in Dominica on December 6th. Two independent candidates won constituencies in the 21-seat Parliament following a boycott by the main opposition political parties.


Dickon Mitchell, 44, who took over the leadership of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in October last year was elected Prime Minister of Grenada in June.

The NDC was declared victor in nine of the 15 seats with the remainder going to the New National Party (NNP) of former Prime Minister Dr. Keith Mitchell.


In cricket after defeating England and Bangladesh Tests series played in the Caribbean, the West Indies were whitewashed in two Test matches against Australia played down under.

Australia won the first Test at Perth by 164 runs and whipped the West Indies by 419 runs in the second Test at Adelaide.

THE CARIBBEAN CRUISE INDUSTRY


The Cruise Industry is projected to continue to grow throughout 2019 with an estimated 30 million travelers, with an increase by 6% from 28.2 million in 2018. In the coming year 18 new ships are on order from 'Caribbean Lines International Association' CLIA Cruise lines. A total of 272 CLIA-member Cruise ships are projected to be in operation by June 2019.

In addition, the industry is the fastest-growing category in the leisure travel market. The industry has experienced an average annual passenger growth rate of approximately 7% per annum, beginning In 1980. As for cruising, an increase of 62% was achieved between 2005 and 2015. Is the Caribbean benefiting?

In recent months, many Tourism Ministers and representatives of the Caribbean Islands are monitoring this market very closely, with some overlooking it in detail, through indept discussion, data and analyst . Many I suppose is wondering why, but as for me, I am fully aware of the

reason. It is because the benefits to cruise Tourism lies in the pockets of the Industry owners and operators and not the Governments or business Entrepreneurs at the destinations.

One might wonder how is the Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association/FCCA really representing the various Governments, knowing of the one sided Industry.

When would this be fully reconized by Government Officials.
