A fair effort has been made, but more still needs to be done to enable more youths to take advantage of the opportunities offered under the Caricom Single Market and Economy (CSME).

This is according to Andre Marriott-Blake, Jamaica’s CARICOM Youth Ambassador, who is in St. Vincent and the Grenadines as part of 20 member Jamaican delegation taking part in a CARICOM Secretariat programme dubbed “Students engaging in the CSME through Field Promotion”.

Speaking to reporters yesterday following a ceremony at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Conference Room, Mr. Blake said many persons consider the CSME only in a theoretical way, hence more needs to be done to help them appreciate it as a practical opportunity based initiative for the Caribbean.

Meanwhile, Oneka Barrett of the Selisis Institute at the University of the West Indies, Mona Campus, says that during the one week Mission, she is looking forward to learning about the strides made here so far in implementing the CSME framework.
