About

“Regrettably for a still peaceful region, the last two and a half decades have seen murder, armed robbery, kidnapping, organised crime, narcotics trafficking, the sale and smuggling of arms, piracy, money laundering, people trafficking, extortion and corruption, in almost every nation in the Caribbean. More recently there have been indications that ruthless cartels that have no regard for human life are being displaced from or are intentionally moving south from Mexico and into the Caribbean.”

This is a quote from the Caribbean Council, which according to its website, is a “long-established trade and investment membership organisation which supports responsible and sustainable private-sector-led investment and development in the Caribbean, Cuba and Central America.”
