During a conference held in Lamentin, Guadeloupe, “The Media: Tool of Integration and Development in the Caribbean,” journalists from Cuba, Dominica, Guadeloupe, French Guiana, Haiti, Jamaica, Martinique, Montserrat, and Saint Lucia, decided to create the Bureau of Information for the Caribbean (BIC). A provisional committee of 15 journalists of various nationalities was elected.
The Bureau of Information for the Caribbean, the first of its kind in this part of the world, has as its mission to develop cooperation between Caribbean journalists and to facilitate the circulation of information among journalists and media workers in the Caribbean basin. It will also have the responsibility to develop links between journalists of the Caribbean and those of the rest of the world, to create a network of information in the various languages spoken in the Caribbean.
The headquarters, which will be based in Guadeloupe, is responsible, for the six next months, to prepare the general constitutive assembly of the BIC planned for June 2010.
