Local Cayman women encouraged to pursue maritime study

Premier Alden McLaughlin has said he hopes to see more young women in the Cayman Islands make use of education-based government funding to consider maritime careers. Speaking at the inaugural Women in Maritime Association Caribbean (WiMAC) conference this week, he said, “This year government appropriated $152 million, or about US$190 million, for education purposes, which includes scholarships … I would be more than pleased if our young people saw fit to tap into this funding to pursue careers in the maritime industry.”
