Premier Amory says more education is needed on CSME
February 07, 2017

In an interview with the St. Kitts and Nevis Information Service (SKNIS), Premier of Nevis and Minister of Labour the Hon. Vance Amory, said that a lot more needs to done to engage citizens and residents, in the workings of the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME).

He said that people do not fully understand and have not been fully acquainted with the provisions of the CSME and because of that, over the years, their general attitude towards the programme has been met with much rejection.

Premier Amory added that as a result of this lack of knowledge and appreciation, often times nationals of St. Kitts and Nevis act out when other nationals from another CARICOM country enter the Federation and start to work.


Premier Amory said that when nationals of St. Kitts and Nevis see non-nationals, but who are nationals of CARICOM countries, it creates a tension because our nationals do not fully understand what was signed.

While alluding the CSME programme to the four-day workshop, presently being held at the Ocean Terrace Inn, which is aimed at establishing a comprehensive Labour Market Information System (LMIS), the Labour Minister said that “it is an effort to remove those grey areas and misunderstandings”.
