I guess Barbados objective of developed status by 2030 has been derailed. The Queen reigned for over 70 years and during that time there has been no appetite to convert any commonwealth countries into developed status after Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Even India with nuclear power and military might, is just merely flirting with the idea as a developed country, so let’s not kid ourselves about developed country status.

We already attempted a regional approach which failed, and now with both Trinidad and Tobago, and Guyana with oil production, and with Jamaica aspiring the same in the near future, there will be no regional agreement, although everyone knows that it would be in our best interest.
