Prime Minister, Andrew Holness, says the Government will be expanding the Caribbean Maritime Institute (CMI), to make it easier to accommodate the growing number of applicants wanting to study there.

According to him, discussions are well advanced to expand the Institute to give more students the opportunity in a field that could give Jamaicans a competitive edge in the global marketplace.
