“Caribbean Export is co-hosting this event with BELTRAIDE and the European Union.  It‘s part of our initiative to increase awareness of the EPA itself and the opportunities to Caribbean or CARIFORUM firms under the Economic Partnership Agreement with the European Union and also with neighboring countries.  And a part of our initiative is to also build capacity of business support organizations and firms to be able to help themselves.”

“What are you seeing here in terms of the turnout and the participation of Belizean business owners?”

 

Zamani Moodie

“Well I’ve been working in the region for twelve years and one thing is for sure is that Belizean businesses have always expressed an interest in their own business and in exporting.  Through the assistance of course of BELTRAIDE, they’ve been very proactive in organizing this workshop.  We’ve always gotten a good response when we have training or other market penetration exercises in the region or externally from Belizean companies so there’s always been an interest expressed.”

“So how does the European Union as sort of the overarching umbrella factor into what is being done regionally and at a local level here in Belize for instance?”

 

Zamani Moodie

“Well part of the EPA is the provision of technical assistance and the European Union has been very generous along with other European partners in supporting capacity building exercises and to increase the competitiveness of regional frames that we are in a better position to take advantage.”
