CARIBBEAN COMMISSION 

As a result of an exchange of notes between the Governments of the United States and the United 
Kingdom, a joint communique was issued on March 9, 1942, announcing the creation of the Anglo- 
American Caribbean Commission. In 1945 the Governments of France and the Netherlands accepted 
invitations extended to them by the United States and the United Kingdom to become full members 
of the Commission, now known as the Caribbean Commission. 

The purpose of the Commission is to encourage and strengthen social and economic cooperation 
between the four member nations and their possessions and colonies in the Caribbean, and to avoid 
unnecessary duplication of research. It is concerned primarily with matters pertaining to labor, 
agriculture, housing, health, education, social welfare, finance, economics, and related subjects in 
the territories under the United States, British, French, and Netherlands flags within the Caribbean 
area. In its studies and in the formulation of its recommendations, the Commission is charged with 
bearing in mind the desirability of close cooperation in social and economic matters between all regions 
adjacent to the Caribbean. It serves as an advisory and expediting body and works with the appro- 
priate United States, British, French, and Netherlands agencies that have administrative responsibility 
in regard to the problem in question. 

The United States chairman reports directly to the President, but for reasons of administrative 
convenience the United States Section of the Commission acts as an integral unit of the Department 
of State
