The Chamber has observed that many firms are oblivious to the resources and support available to them to support the development and expansion of their businesses. Many are not aware that there are regional agencies with various resources, financial and technical, that they can benefit from. This lack of awareness is prevalent, because the information is broadly dispersed and not consolidated in any single place and easily accessed and utilized.
The St. Lucia Chamber of Commerce, in seeking to strengthen the business support and facilitation infrastructure available to its’ members, will be hosting on June 1st,2023, The Resource Agency Forum, under the theme Making Business Support Accessible.
The Resource Agency Forum is expected to commence at 2:00 p.m., with pointed presentations on the support available, and provided by the participating agencies, that so far include, the Caribbean Development Bank, Caribbean Export, Caricom Development Fund, Export St. Lucia, St. Lucia Development Bank, the Bank of Saint Lucia, and Invest Saint Lucia who is also a sponsor of the Event. There will be ample opportunities for dialogue between presenters and participants.
