By the end of May 2016, some 300 tertiary students across the region would have benefitted from a total of 13 exchange tours to Caribbean Community (CARICOM) member states.

The programme is geared towards exposing CARICOM nationals on the opportunities to work, travel and do business in the region. Funding for the trip was provided by the European Union under the 10th European Development Fund (EDF) aimed at strengthening regional cooperation and supporting the integration agendas of Regional Organisations.
