Prime Minister Andrew Holness says he expects a positive outcome from discussions between himself and Trinidad and Tobago Prime Minister, Dr. Keith Rowley.

The two Prime Ministers discussed the issues of freedom of movement of people at the recently-concluded CARICOM Heads of Government meeting in Georgetown, Guyana.

Dr. Rowley is to make an official visit to Jamaica on July 17.

Mr. Holness says he told CARICOM leaders this week, that free movement of Caricom nationals should be treated with the same respect as free movement of goods within the region.

Meanwhile, the Prime Minister says CARICOM leaders have decided to lobby the US government directly, on the correspondent banking crisis.

Several banks in the region have been cut off from their correspondent banks in the US, severely hampering their ability to do transactions in US dollars and process foreign credit cards.
