Senior government ministers are meeting in Montego Bay, Jamaica, later this week to discuss ways to unlock economic growth in the Caribbean region.

The meeting from 23 to 24 October is being hosted by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the government of Jamaica.

The issues to be discussed include the reliability and efficiency of energy provision and a tax regime to encourage investment and steps to strengthen the financial sector.

Caribbean economies have been slow to recover from the global financial crisis.
