Hon. Mark King
"The emphasis is usually on the movement and exchange of goods and services, the removal of tariff barriers and such considerations which are all very important but sometimes the human beings gets lost. The beauty of social integration is that it places emphasis directly on the human being, the citizens and his/her concerns and welfare comes into sharp focus. It has incredibly played an important role in ensuring the development in our sub-region is people centered."
