CARICOM Secretariat Headquarters at Turkeyen, East Demerara, Gorgetown, Guyana CARICOM Secretariat Headquarters at Turkeyen, East Demerara, Gorgetown, Guyana
GEORGETOWN, Guyana, Mar 11, CMC – The Guyana-based Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Secretariat says it is collaborating with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade to educate Jamaican students on regional integration and the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME).

The CMSE allows for the free movement of goods, skills, labour and services across the 15-member regional integration movement.

The Secretariat said that the event on Tuesday will cater for an estimated 300 students from secondary schools in the parish of Clarendon.

CSMEEs“The activity came out of a request by the teachers at the Kellits High School, Clarendon who requested that the Ministry engage their students on the CSME, a topic on the Caribbean Examination Council (CXC) programme.

“This specific collaboration fits into the programme of activities being executed by the Secretariat as it continues to support CARICOM member states with public education on regional integration targeting key stakeholders such as secondary school students and teachers.”

The Secretariat said that the communications specialist at the CSME Unit, Salas Hamilton, will deliver a presentation on the CSME and career opportunities within CARICOM to this gathering of students.

“The various regimes of the CSME provide cross-border employment and business possibilities for CARICOM nationals, including those on the verge of entering the job market. For example, the CARICOM Skills Certificate allows certain categories of skilled nationals to work in CSME-participating member states,” it added.
