The Caribbean remains fragmented both economically and politically as a result of competition and conflict among the European powers.

The case for regional integration is both simple and irrefutable. First we are small and we need ...

    Standards can drive revolutionary changes in technology: consider the impact that SQL has had on the database market, or consider that the World Wide Web was launched by the combination of HTML, HTTP, URL, and SSL. My belief is that protocol standards (XML, Web services) and programming standards (Java and the. NET alternatives, XML Query, etc. ) will have a similarly profound impact on integration. Integration encompasses a broad range of information technology (IT) needs: Enterprise applicati...
