CARICOM border officials commend CSME training
Published on June 16, 2017Email To Friend    Print Version


BRIDGETOWN, Barbados -- Caribbean Community (CARICOM) immigration and customs officers took the opportunity this week to discuss CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME) processes at a training workshop.

The two-day session in Barbados sought to ensure there was common understanding of the free movement of persons regime. Participants were also involved in training in customer service and the right of establishment and provision of services.

There was representation from all member states who are significantly participating in the CSME and some officials were engaged on-line. The training took place with support from the 10th European Development Fund and ended on Wednesday.

In the wrap-up comments participants commended the timeliness of the activity and the information received. They also highlighted networking and sharing experiences as a useful tool for implementation of obligations within the CSME.

Participants committed to ensuring follow up activities are implemented within their home state as they engage peers via the development and execution of training. This is expected to assist with the maintaining and reinforcing of capacity within member states.
