Basseterre, St. Kitts – Nevis
March 10, 2008 (CUOPM)
Several issues of importance to the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis were discussed at the just concluded 19th Inter-Sessional Heads of Government Meeting in The Bahamas.
The Heads of Government, among them, St. Kitts and Nevis’ Prime Minister Hon. Dr. Denzil L. Douglas urged Member States and CARICOM Universities to work assiduously to achieve the integration of the Caribbean Knowledge and Learning Network (CKLN) and the Caribbean Universities Project for Integrated Distance Education (CUPIDE). This would harmonize the Region’s approach to the delivery of continuous learning and the creation of increased access to training opportunities and enhanced skills for its citizens.
According to the communiquÃ© issued at the end of the meeting, the regional leaders noted the progress being made by CKLN to provide access to tertiary education programmes that are aligned with the Caribbean Labour Market demands and which will facilitate secure connectivity between and among Regional Governments.
