We are committed to fostering resilient economies, protecting our environment, and ensuring inclusive growth for generations to come. The Caribbean is brimming with potential. where sustainability isn’t merely a choice; it’s the path to a prosperous and equitable future.” Leo Naut – Deputy Executive Director, Caribbean Export
