Caribbean, China, Taiwan: A joint policy

At the Caricom Blog, Sir Ronald Sanders makes the case for the Caribbean to pursue a “joint policy” towards China: “Belize, Haiti, St. Vincent & the Grenadines, and St Kitts/Nevis continue to recognise Taiwan while the rest of the Caricom countries have diplomatic relations with China. This division within Caricom has kept the development of a trade, aid and investment policy for China off the agenda of Caricom Heads of Government even though China is now involved with the region in a number of ways including as a lending member of the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB).
