Grenada: The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Council for Trade and Economic Development has received an application from Grenada for the legalisation of imports of cement from outside of the CARICOM bloc into the country. Nation News has reported that the country is experiencing a cement shortage because Trinidad & Tobago-based Trinidad Cement has suspended exports. The producer reduced its activities because of the on-going Covid-19 outbreak.

Grenada previously sought to import cement from non-CARICOM member countries in 2004 following Hurricane Ivan.
