Advocacy & Representation
CHTA’s work in advocacy raises one voice for the Caribbean private sector in local, regional and global arenas—recently addressing issues such as taxation, the cost and ease of travel, the lifting of the US-Cuba embargo, the Sharing Economy and Zika. These and other issues affecting the region have been addressed with CARICOM, the OECS, CTO and the US Government.
