The Government of Grenada along with the UN International Organization for Migration (IOM), has recruited Dr. Neville Ying to lead the finalisation of the Grenada National Diaspora Engagement Policy & 5-year action plan.
This initiative is another step made by the government to move forward with its commitment to formally create a meaningful, collaborative framework to mainstream the inclusion of the Grenadian diaspora in nation-building.
This policy will address some of the areas of challenge in this regard. Key areas include remittances, diaspora tourism, improving consular services to Grenadians abroad, knowledge transfer, investments, generational youth engagement among others.
Formulation of the policy will be carried out using a consultative process with the Government of Grenada, members of the diaspora, public and private sector, academia among other stakeholders and will be aligned to the goals of the National Sustainability Plan-Vision 2030.
The finalized policy will be tabled in Cabinet for Parliamentary approval.
