The Caribbean Export Development Agency (Caribbean Export) in partnership with Republic Bank Ltd hosted the first workshop for small businesses in Trinidad and Tobago following the signing of a landmark MOU between the two organisations, to build the capacity of small businesses using a referral system, ensuring businesses receive assistance to develop, grow and create jobs. 

The 3-day ProNet workshop focused on Export Marketing and welcomed in-person participation at the bank’s headquarters for the first-time since the COVID-19 pandemic and the lifting of restrictions.  Led by ProNET trainer Ms. Maxine Harris, the workshop focused on preparing the participants’ businesses for export, increasing knowledge in market research, marketing & promotion and the development of export plans.

A key feature of this programme was the experiential learning and tuition that was received from external experts from the Export-Import Bank of Trinidad and Tobago, a local freight forwarder Cargo Consolidators Agency Ltd, Trinidad & Tobago Bureau of Standards, ExporTT and a leading agro-processor RHS Limited. The Trinidad and Tobago Manufacturers’ Association was a key partner in mobilising participation of its members.

ProNet is a modular training programme for small owners who want to grow their business and become more competitive.  Other modules in the programme include Business Strategy, Quality Management, Production Management, Resource Management, Product Development, Information Management, Human Resource Management, Cost & Financial Management and Energy Management.
