A Charter for the public services of the Caribbean was endorsed at a Ministerial Symposium that took place at the Jolly Beach Hotel in Antigua and Barbuda on March, 9 and 10, 2017.
The Charter identifies components of a professional and effective public service. It establishes a general framework of guiding principles, policies and management mechanisms reflecting a common commitment of the Public Services of the Caribbean Region. It is intended to serve as a catalyst for the reform, modernisation and transformation of national public sector entities within the context of each country’s realities and priorities. Consultations took place in Caribbean Centre for Development Administration (CARICAD) member states ahead of the Symposium to allow citizens to discuss the Charter and provide feedback.
