Workshop-regional business networking focuses on CARIFORUM EPA

A one-day workshop and regional business-to-business strategic networking, which focused on the CARIFORUM-EU Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA), was held March 28 following CARIFORUM’s Council of Ministers Meeting March 26-27. Both engagements were held at the St. Kitts Marriott Resort. Minister of International Trade the Honourable Lindsay Grant said that the training comes at an opportune time as the region prepares for the fallout after the United Kingdom’s (UK) withdrawal from the European Union (EU), also known as “Brexit.” “The government of St. Kitts and Nevis welcomes the opportunity to collaborate with the Caribbean Export Development Agency, the European Union and the German Development Corporation in hosting this most timely workshop as we as small island states must take advantage of all available avenues and opportunities to market our goods and our services, and the CARICOM CARIFORUM-EU Economic Partnership Agreement, the EPA, is one such avenue,” said Minister Grant. He mentioned that Part II of the EPA trade and trade related matters, specifically titles 1 and 2, addresses trading goods and investments, trade and services, and E-commerce, respectively. He added that these are the areas “we will seek to address today to have our goods and our service providers take the full opportunity to capitalize on the mechanisms provided for in the EPA.
