  36. 36. The Caribbean Network of Service Coalitions Notwithstanding the fact that the services sector of the Community is the largest in terms of employment, share of total output, and trade, it is characterised by fragmentation of effort and lack of a common focus to increase international competitiveness. Further, it often appears that the interests of the stakeholders are too diverse to foster its overall development. Therefore, it is indispensible that the service sector stakeholders be organised.
