ExportsHeads of government from around the Caribbean will converge in Barbados this month to attend the Caribbean Exporters’ Colloquium, which is organized by the Caribbean Export Development Agency.

The two-day event, which takes place at the Hilton resort in Bridgetown March 20-21, brings together industry leaders to discuss means of increasing export-led growth in the Caribbean.

Minister of Financial Services Ryan Pinder will speak at the conference and attendees will also hear from Caribbean Export executive director Pamela Coke Hamilton, Prime Minister of Barbados Freundel Stuart and David Jessop, managing director of the Caribbean Council.

The proposed programme includes discussions on the global trading environment, statistical analysis of the region’s exports, using innovation to create market demand and a new framework for export development.

The Caribbean Exporters’ Colloquium takes place during Caribbean Export Week–an initiative developed by Caribbean Export to facilitate exports to regional and international markets.
