USAID AND CARICOM Development Fund sign an MOU to strengthen cooperation

The United States Agency for International Development/Eastern and Southern Caribbean Mission (USAID/ESC) and the CARICOM Development Fund (CDF) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on Monday, June 21. The signing of the MOU occurred at the offices of the CDF in Barbados. The MOU provides a broad framework for cooperation between the two organizations and strengthening of institutional ties between them. The MOU also serves as a basis for USAID and CDF to collaborate in the delivery of services to select member states of CARICOM, as the Caribbean seeks to forge closer economic integration within the framework of the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME).
