Barbados Service Providers seek partners in SVG


A 14-man delegation from Barbados will spend two days here from Monday August 29, 2005. The group’s objective is to identify potential business partners here for Barbadian service providers, and to establish joint ventures for the mutual benefit of business persons in both countries.

The mission is being executed by the Barbados Investment and Development Corporation and the Barbados Coalition of Service Industries. They also seek to build a base for further trade promotion and capacity building initiatives so as to increase trade in services between CARICOM states.{{more}}

The local Chamber of Industry and Commerce will be assisting with the co-ordination of the two-day event, which will be held at the Chamber of Commerce Conference Room. Support will also be had from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Industry and Commerce, NIPI and the Centre for Enterprise Development formerly SEDU.

Local service providers will have the opportunity to meet with the Barbados delegation in face to face sessions to explore the variety of services and capacity building tools that they have to offer.

The Contingent from Barbados will include representatives from the following service areas: Information Communication and Telecommunication (ICT) Services, Business Advisory and Training Services, Laundry Services, Property Maintenance and Real Estate Services, Special Event Management Services, Spa Treatment/Natural Personal Care Products and Services and Photography Services.
