However, some countries are yet to fully implement the measures to allow nurses, teachers, artisans with a Caribbean Vocational qualification, as well as holders of Associate Degrees or comparable qualifications and household domestic workers to move freely.Ambassador Clarence Henry of the National Authorising Office (NAO) told the Observer media in Antigua Tuesday that the island had argued its position at the 40th meeting of the Council of Trade and Economic Development (COTED) that was held in Guyana last weekend.“When a country is unable to finance its own institutions and continue to owe international and regional institutions, the country’s constraints must be taken into consideration.
