Cayman Airways official carrier

Several delegates from Jamaica and the United States are flying on Cayman Airways for the University College of the Cayman Islands International Conference on Leadership, Governance and Empowerment slated for Thursday and Friday, 17 and 18 March.

“The University College is very grateful to Cayman Airways for being the official carrier of the Conference for the second year now. It is through their generosity that we are able to extend invitations to various experts overseas, which truly enriches the experience for all participants,” said Livingston Smith, conference director.

The two-day event which features Internationalist Sir Shridath Ramphal, Caribbean Development Bank President-elect Dr. Warren Smith and Chief Magistrate Margaret Ramsay-Hale as keynote speakers, also attracted academic professionals, business leaders, people in government and notable community figures both local and international.

There will be around 60 presentations covering a wide array of subjects from e-governance, finance, gender issues, roles of social institutions in empowering people, food security, media and politics, among others.

Throughout the Conference, Cayman Airways will exhibit alongside other local businesses, artists and publishers.

Some conference highlights also include a lunch hour concert featuring local performers and UCCI’s own choir, dancers and steelpan band.
