The Eighth CARICOM-Cuba Summit was held on December 8, 1972, to mark the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the first four independent territories of the English-speaking Caribbean and the largest island of the Antilles.

Barbados, Guyana, Jamaica, and Trinidad and Tobago decided to formalize and strengthen ties with Havana after gaining independence from the United Kingdom and despite the territorial isolation under which Cuba was subject.

Those four countries led to the establishment of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) in July 1973, an integration mechanism that also includes Antigua and Barbuda, the Bahamas, Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Haiti, Monserrat, Saint Lucia, Saint Kitts and Nevis. , St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and Suriname.

Currently, Cuba maintains relations with the states of the Community at the highest level, based on respect, equality, cooperation and solidarity. (Source: PL)
