Turkey’s Relations with the Caribbean Community (CARICOM)

Turkey-CARICOM High Level Officials Meeting held in Istanbul in 2008 set the agenda for the relations. Turkey has established a consultation and cooperation mechanism with CARICOM in 2011.

The First Foreign Ministers Meeting of the Turkey-CARICOM Consultation and Cooperation Mechanism took place in İstanbul between 17 and 21 July 2014, under the co-chairmanship of the then-Foreign Minister Davutoğlu with the participation of 11 ministers from CARICOM.

Turkey supports the development efforts of the CARICOM countries, through cooperation projects undertaken by TİKA and through donations to the Caribbean Development Fund.
