Political independence was meaningless without economic independence and the newly independent states of the Caribbean found themselves severely challenges by an international economic system founded on a development paradigm premised on the belief that the accumulation of wealth was the sole route to prosperity and that creating the conditions for more wealth was the preferred pathway to sustainable development. There have been numerous changes to this scenario over the years and Confronting Challenges Maximising Opportunities traces the Caribbean s response to the varying challenges. Using market access as the point to highlight specific challenges, this collection examines Caribbean Diplomacy and paints a picture of the imperatives for social and economic development and the need for a proactive stance to the conditionalities inherent in market access negotiations.
