(ZIZ News) — On Sunday, local students left the Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport for Trinidad as part of a CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME) student exchange exercise.
According to a statement, the 19 students will able to identify opportunities within CSME through first-hand experience within the field.
Samantha Boone, focal point person for the CSME Student Exchange Programme, said the goal is to give the students some insight into the workings of the CSME in Trinidad and in St. Kitts Nevis.
“My expectation basically is that the delegation comes back with knowledge of the CSME operations in Trinidad and also have a wider understanding of the operations that occur here in St. Kitts as well as that in Trinidad and be able to make a comparative analysis of both operations here and in Trinidad,” she said during an interview with ZIZ News.
In a media release, Salas Hamilton, Specialist Communications Officer at the CARICOM Secretariat for CSME said the project demonstrates the Secretariat’s commitment to assisting member states in ensuring that young people are more involved in taking part and benefitting from regional integration.
