CARICOM SG hosts students from Trinidad and Tobago Universities

CARICOM Secretary-General Ambassador Irwin LaRocque on Tuesday hosted a group of tertiary students from Trinidad and Tobago who are participating in the project ‘Students Engaging the CSME through Field Promotion’.
The project gives tertiary students practical knowledge and exposure to the CSME’s (CARICOM Single Market and Economy), implementation in Member States.
It is also meant to motivate them to access cross-border opportunities as wage earners, entrepreneurs and service providers.
This group of students is in Guyana to visit Government Ministries, private sector and other  entities  that engender Regional integration.
The   Secretary-General told the group they are being given the opportunity to see the CSME at work.
“You are a living experience that the CSME is at work. It is alive and it is well,” he said. He also gave the assurance that CARICOM would continue to enhance how it functions.
The students thanked the CSME Unit for the opportunity to learn more about its functioning and about the CARICOM Secretariat. They felt   all  CARICOM Members States needed to   work together to ensure  a sustainable future for the CSME.
The students are accompanied by a lecturer and Trinidad and Tobago’s national CSME focal point.
