Ideas exchange at the UWIs 1st Caribbean Competitiveness Forum
Hope your week is going great so far! Had a little hiatus for a couple days...attended the [UWI's] 1st Caribbean Competitiveness Forum at the Hyatt...It was an action packed 2 days with many successful local, regional and international entrepreneurs, policy makers and academics. Got to listen to presentations by the creator of Nut-med (Grenada), Salada Food (Jamaica), Angostura, Venture Captial (Trinidad), Alex Pratt (UK) and many more.
A lot of knowledge was shared for those in the SME sector. These forums are great as it shows us just how talented we are in the Caribbean and how much we can learn from each other. Yet, from an international perspective, it makes us cognizant of the fact that there is still a lot of room for growth and development.
Also present were NEDCO clients showcasing their products and services and other companies and booths including giveaways by Cher Mere etc.
Very informative session!
