Dominica is gearing up to host the first of three public sensitization sessions on the facilitation of travel within the CSME.
The session carded for September 9th 2016 forms part of the CARICOM Secretariat public education program regarding the CSME.
According to an official release, these sessions are being facilitated by resource persons from the Secretariat and implemented with assistance provided under the 10th European Development Fund (EDF).
The public sensitization exercise is expected to cover the provisions for free movement and travel under the CSME regimes such as those for CARICOM Skilled Nationals and the Right of Establishment.
The aim is to inform CARICOM citizens of their rights and responsibilities as they move within the CSME for reasons related to employment, leisure or business. At the end of these sessions, participants should be better informed about the provisions for free movement and how to make use of them as CARICOM nationals.
The session will be held at the Goodwill Christian Union Church and officials from Dominica’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and CARICOM Affairs and Trade will be in attendance.
The other two (2) sessions will be held later in Guyana and Jamaica.
