Sino-CARICOM trade is a hot topic now. But can a trade agreement between the Caribbean and China actually be useful? In this episode, Alicia Nicholls offers some skepticism on that point. We had a wide ranging discussion about all things trade within the CARICOM (Caribbean Community): issues from the "One China" Recognition split in the region to the lack of policy capacity to even exploit current trade agreements will continue to frustrate the prospects of a Sino-CARICOM trade agreement.
