The way forward for the implementation of the Regional HRD Strategy continues to be developed at a workshop being held at the Guyana Marriott Hotel in Georgetown.
Regional Human Resource stakeholders from across the Regional are in the process of crafting an implementation plan for the strategy. Participants of the workshop have been divided into groups to address various issues in relation to the implementation of the strategy and have been hard at work to ensure that the objectives of the workshop are met.
The HRD Strategy has been approved by the Community Council for presentation to the CARICOM Heads of Government in July 2017. See photo highlights from Day Two of the workshop above.
