CHALLENGES LIE AHEAD FOR CARICOM ...

Can Caribbean Regional Integration Facilitate Economic Growth?



FEBRUARY 7, 2012
by Jaevion Nelson




Over 50 years of work have gone into facilitating and promoting regional integration in the Caribbean, but the 15-member regional bloc known as CARICOM (Caribbean Community) appears to be floundering.

Regional integration has long been seen as a response to protect the small, vulnerable economies of the Caribbean from the effects of globalization and the emergence of trade blocs. In 1989, regional heads of government adopted the Grand Anse Declaration, which was designed to facilitate the launch of a CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME). The CSME was established in 2006 after 13 years of deliberation, and had several intentions: to enable free movement of goods, services, capital, and labor; to increase intra-regional, cross-border trade and investment; and to improve the region’s international competitiveness.

RAJSHANI, BANGLADESH PROFILE ...HOME TO MANGO ROUNDPOINT ...

Rajshahi, Bangladesh




According to popular legend, a Sufi Muslim saint named Shah Makhdum rode a crocodile up the river and brought Islam to Rajshahi. His shrine in the city is visited by many Muslims in the area seeking a cure for infertility, sickness and other problems.

Situated on the banks of the Ganges a few miles from India, Rajshahi city is home to about half a million Bengali Muslims. 

The region has been successively dominated by waves of Aryan, Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim, British, and finally Pakistani control before the country finally gained independence in 1971.

 Rajshahi city itself became prominent during the British Raj, and although once predominantly Hindu, the city is now 90% Muslim.

Drive Around In Circles At Bangladesh’s Mango Roundabout



Hello, fellow friends of tropical fruit! 

Here’s some simple mango math to keep you occupied, preferably while you’re driving a rental car in Rajshahi, a city in Bangladesh on the banks of the lower Ganges where this fabulous roundabout is located.



Bangladesh is a minor mango producer, but its annual output of 1.05 million tonnes is still such a vast amount of mango that, even if made of solid gold, the three mangoes which adorn the roundabout would have to be 640,000 cubic feet each for this fruit basket to equal in weight the Bangladeshi mango crop. 

In other words: 78.5× the gold reserve of the United States—per mango.


Those would be epic gold mangoes. Eat your share of mangoes. Mangoes are awesome.
