Grenada-January-Visit-Headline-Image-1

Digital transformation, the green economy and the ease of doing business were the focus of discussion earlier this week, when Caribbean Export’s Executive Director Deodat Maharaj and Services Specialist Allyson Francis met with the Hon. Lennox Andrews, Hon. Andy Williams and senior government officials across several portfolios in Grenada.

During the extensive dialogue, Mr. Maharaj underscored the regional Agency’s commitment to strengthening its partnership with Grenada to drive the Government’s transformational agenda in key sectors.

The Caribbean Export executive team also met with several Business Support Organisations and other partners in the private sector to discuss concrete ways to support private sector investment and business development in 2023.

 To address one of the pressing concerns raised during the meeting, Caribbean Export agreed to provide immediate technical support to the creative sector and capacity-building support to the country’s agro-processing sector.  The proposed programming initiatives will better equip the MSMEs to use market intelligence tools, understand exporting requirements and the fundamental nuances of the export market.

Of the short but productive visit to Grenada, Mr. Maharaj expressed his delight in meeting with the government ministers and other partners to agree on concrete ways to strengthen the Agency’s support to private sector development and advance the country’s transformational agenda.

 With an implementation rate of over 85%, Caribbean Export is pillar-assessed and focused on private sector development aligned to key Sustainable Development Goals. The Agency remains a credible implementing partner ready to help drive Caribbean transformation.
