WASHINGTON, DC, United States (CMC) — A new report by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) is recommending that Caribbean countries fully underscore the importance of preparing for a broad resumption of travel and tourism, as well as the importance of bolstering capacity for debt management in the wake of the novel coronavirus pandemic.

In addition, the report, which reviewed the ongoing impact of the virus for Caribbean countries, also recommends broadening the social safety net, improving Internet connectivity, and strengthening the capacities of emergency health services.

The report, Caribbean Quarterly Bulletin: The Pandemic Saga Continues, also includes detailed assessments for The Bahamas, Barbados, Guyana, Jamaica, Suriname, Trinidad and Tobago, and the countries of the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS).
