However, the effects of an import ban by the US led to a sharp decline in smartphone sales globally.Huawei and Samsung aside, other major players continued to struggle. Apple, for example, sold 38 million iPhones in the second quarter, a decline of 13.8 per cent year on year.“Too few incremental benefits are preventing existing iPhone users from replacing their smartphones,” said Gupta.RegionsWith regards to markets, China and Brazil were the only two countries out of the top five to show growth.China retained its number 1 position with 101 million smartphone sales, up 0.5 per cent year on year. Gartner noted Chinese vendors, with the availability of 5G models, “had to clear out inventory of 4G high-end smartphone model”.Brazil’s smartphone sales increased 1.3 per cent, achieving 10.8 million smartphone sales, as the country’s economy began to recover.Gartner warned smartphone sales will remain weak for the rest of the year.

As a part of this new development, the Academy has been incorporated as a non-profit entity with its own legal identity. The CCJ Academy will continue to be chaired by the Honourable Mr. Justice Winston Anderson, a judge of the CCJ.In late 2016, consultants were engaged to develop recommendations for the restructuring, expansion andstrengthening of CALCA. The measures that are presently being undertaken emanate from those recommendations. The CCJ Academy is now in the process of rebranding which will include a new website, new logo and other communication tools. The 5th Biennial Conference will continue as planned, during the period 13-15 December 2018, in Kingston, Jamaica. For the second time, the Conference will be hosted in partnership with the General Legal Council of Jamaica (GLC) and the Conference will have a strategic focus on Caribbean legal practice and procedure, legal issues pertaining to intellectual property, the modernizing of justice delivery, and much more.Mr.Justice Anderson stated that “the movement from CALCA to the CCJ Academy of Law is a strategicpivot to reflect the close relationship with the Court and the greater role that the CCJ Academy can playin facilitating practical legal training for the legal and judicial profession, and in developing researchresponses that are pertinent to the Caribbean context for the benefit of the region.”He stated that the CCJ Academy will continue to regard its biennial conferences as its flagship event and noted that the issues being examined during the 5th Biennial Conference should be useful for the judiciary, the legal profession, law enforcement, government officials, creative industries practitioners, regulators, bankers and other private sector interests.Additionally, the CCJ Academy for Law has already begun to increase the number of its activities.

CCAT will be an independent institution mandated to resolve employment disputes between employees and their CARICOM institution employers that enjoy immunity.
