(ZIZ News) — In response to country reports that pointed to the need for increased public education and information sharing on matters as related to the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME), two meetings with key stakeholders are scheduled to be held in St. Kitts and Nevis this week.
Lyndis Harris, CSME Focal Point in St. Kitts and Nevis, said the meetings will serve to focus on the Movement of Skills and Right of Establishment regimes as grounded within the CSME.
Free Movement of Skills includes the right of a CARICOM national to work without a work permit in any CARICOM member state participating in the CSME.
The Right of Establishment allows CARICOM nationals the freedom to have the right to work as self-employed persons in the CSME.
According to a CARICOM press release, these two rights still need clarification among key stakeholders and the meetings will serve to provide increased clarity.
Participants have been invited from within both the public and private sectors to attend meetings on Monday 16th March at the Ministry Of International Trade.
