CARICOM Looks at Advancing the Free Movement of CARICOM Nationals

Advancing the free movement of skilled nationals in the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME) was the focus of the Thirtieth Special Meeting of the Council for Human and Social Development (COHSOD). The event was held in Georgetown, Guyana, on May twenty-fourth. The C.S.M.E economic regime enables citizens from all member states to live and work at their CARICOM country of choice. It intends to expand the pool of skills accessible throughout the region and facilitate economic integration. Minister of Rural Transformation, Community Development, Labour, and Local Government, Oscar Requeña chaired the meeting, and Prime Minister of the Commonwealth of Dominica, Roosevelt Skerrit, led the discussion. Skerrit asked member states to evaluate proposals on the freedom of movement. These involve a number of options that appropriately consider the sensitivities of member states and provide for exceptions and flexibilities, and even exclusion, when necessary.
