Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit assured overseas students their education would continue to be taken care of.

He said the places of students at the University of the West Indies were secure and he would send a letter to the pro-vice-chancellor requesting that no action be taken against them.

“We will make arrangements to keep our commitments to the university. We’re also informing the universities in the United States, where we have large numbers of students, to indicate to them, once the financial system is up, that we will keep our commitment to our students so they can be at school,” he said during his daily press conference in Roseau.

He thanked regional governments that had pledged financial support and continued to lend assistance to the island after it was struck by Hurricane Maria nine days ago. (RA)
