  1. More extensive functional cooperation and you wanted to pull Saint Lucia out of the Eastern Caribbean Civil Aviation Authority and join with the Trinidad authority because they didn’t approve some airline you wanted to operate! More functional cooperation and you spur on a race to the bottom in CIP prices. Yeah right! Actions speak louder than empty words!
