Products, Services, Music and Fashion from St Lucia and other OECS countries will be in the Spotlight here over the next four days at the Caribbean Specialty Expo, organized by the Trade Export Promotion Agency (TEPA)
The OECS Commission has given its backing to the event, which has attracted over Fifty small and medium enterprises (SMEs) from across the OECS to showcase products and services until Sunday March 12. They are being supported by the OECS Commission through its Competitive Business Unit – CBU. The Expo, which is being held under the theme: “A Unique Buying Experience”, will feature high quality, innovative products and services of the region, the OECS says.
The OECS Competitive Business Unit (CBU) is collaborating with TEPA and Ministry of Commerce in staging the Specialty Caribbean Expo.
Acting head of the OECS CBU Marlon Marie, says Caribbean Expo is a clear manifestation of regional cooperation as it brings together the OECS and one of the leading trade promotion agencies, working with SMEs and governments in all Member States in this most extensive engagement.
According to Marie, the Expo serves as a platform to show the output of the various sub-components of the private sector programme under the Economic Integration and Trade of the OECS Region Project funded by the 10th European Development Fund (EDF) and the governments of the OECS.
