HARMONIZING THE SECURITIES ACTS OF THE CARIBBEAN COMMUNITYDownload This Article
Annette C. Borel
The Caribbean Community Council for Finance and Planning (COFAP), at its Twelfth meeting held in March 2008, decided that a major element of the integration programme for capital markets should be the formulation of a uniform securities law for adoption by Member States. At the meeting of COFAP, the adoption of a uniform securities law was viewed as one of the measures to further the development and integration of the capital markets in the Community in accordance with Article 44.1(d) of the Revised Treaty of Chaguaramas. This article seeks to explore some of the issues of which regional policymakers must be cognizant in the quest to implement harmonized Securities Acts in Member States, and offers a more pragmatic approach to achieving harmonization.
