History of CARICOM
Most members of CARICOM gained their independence from the United Kingdom beginning in the 1960s. CARICOM's origins are rooted in the West Indies Federation (1958-1962) and the Caribbean Free Trade Association (1965-1972), two attempts at regional integration that failed after disagreements about financial and administrative matters. CARICOM, initially known as the Caribbean Community and Common Market, was created in 1973 by the Treaty of Chaguaramas. This treaty was revised in 2001, primarily to change the organization's focus from a common market to a single market and single economy.
