It is with great regret that Grenada notes the decision of the British people to leave the European Union. While many of us would have preferred a different result, the world must accept and respect the democratic process and the will of the people.
There is no doubt that this decision will have a major effect on the European Union.
The Caribbean region must use this decision to examine our own Single Market and Economy, and the implications of this for trade and other relations, and adjust accordingly.
Grenada is forever grateful to Prime Minister David Cameron for his recent initiative to re-engage the Caribbean region and assist in our infrastructural and other development. We also thank him for his historic and memorable visit to Grenada last September. It is our hope that Britain’s new leadership will continue Prime Minister Cameron’s agenda for the Caribbean.
