Begin Post-Brexit Negotiations NOW – Fitten to CARICOM

The UK High Commissioner to Jamaica, David Fitton, is urging regional governments to immediately begin negotiations with the European Union to determine the relationship they’ll have after Brexit.

He was speaking at a symposium at the UWI Mona campus this morning on the implications of Brexit for the Commonwealth Caribbean.

High Commissioner Fitton is urging the Caribbean to act now.

He says it would be unwise for regional governments to delay holding any talks with the EU and the UK about the implications of Brexit.

The High Commissioner says the region is in a vulnerable position following Britain’s decision to leave the European Union.

Speaking at the symposium as well was former Prime Minister Bruce Golding.

He says existing trade arrangements with the EU and Jamaica will not be impacted by Brexit.
