The CARICOM Regional Organisation for Standards and Quality (CROSQ) has been congratulated on the successful implementation of the “Technical Barriers to Trade” component of the 10th EDF programme.

The praise came on Wednesday from Minister of Small Business, Entrepreneurship and Commerce, Dwight Sutherland, as he addressed the 34th Meeting of CROSQ, at Baobab Tower, Warrens, St. Michael.

While also recognizing the role played by CROSQ’s strategic intra-regional and extra-regional partners, the Dominican Republic and Germany, he said: “The overall objective of the programme was to facilitate intra and inter-regional trade as well as the international competitiveness and sustainable production of goods and services within the CARIFORUM States for the enhancement of social and economic development.

“The specific objective was to increase the use of services of internationally recognized regional quality infrastructure institutions in the CARIFORUM States. I understand that the programme achieved over 90 per cent of its deliverables.”
