CARICOM Day (Guyana)

CARICOM Day is a public holiday in Guyana, and it is observed on the first Monday in July each year. The holiday commemorates the anniversary when the Treaty of Chaguaramas was signed on July 4, 1973 in Chaguaramas, Trinidad and Tobago.

Many Caribbean countries gained their independence in line with the broader British policy of decolonization in the 1960s and 1970s, as a result, the intraregional trades grew quickly. In 1973, Barbados, Guyana, Jamaica, and Trinidad and Tobago signed the Treaty of Chaguaramas and formed the Caribbean Community and Common Market to deepen the level of integration.

One year later, many other Caribbean countries such as Antigua and Barbuda, Belize, Dominica obtained accession to CARICOM.

The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) is a regional grouping of Caribbean countries, and it has 20 countries: 15 member states and 5 associate members. The population of these countries is approximately 16 million.
