MINISTER OF Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, Dr Ken Baugh, yesterday announced the introduction of a Caribbean Community (CARICOM) passport for Jamaicans by December 2008.
Baugh, who is also the deputy prime minister, said the Government wanted to deepen economic ties with Latin America and Cuba.
He said Jamaica would carry out a policy of fully fledged engagement with Cuba.
The minister also issued an indirect call for the United States (US) to lift its embargo against the communist state, noting that this decision would benefit the entire region.
