The Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA) and COLEACP join forces to support a more resilient and greener agricultural and agrifood business sector in the Caribbean in the post-COVID-19 recovery process. A two-hour session focusing on entrepreneurship development will be organized every two months, in collaboration with other international and Caribbean partners. The sessions will feature successful businesses and MSMEs across the region, across various value chains and markets. They will also bring views from experts in finance, policy and research on key topics such as improved production, trade and competitiveness, food safety and quality, rebuilding tourism with increased linkages to agriculture, bioeconomy and circular economy, regional logistics and efficiency in trade.
The Caribbean Agrifood Business Series will be launched online Wednesday 9 June, 10:00-12:00am (EST) with a 1st Session focusing on Post-COVID-19: Resilience building and new opportunities for Caribbean businesses.
The Caribbean Agrifood Business Series is organised within the framework of the technical cooperation agreement signed by IICA and COLEACP in April 2021 to contribute to a more sustainable and resilient agriculture sector in the Caribbean region.
We are looking forward to e-seeing you on the 9 June!
This business support is provided through the Fit For Market programmes, implemented by COLEACP within the Framework of Development Cooperation between the Organisation of African, Caribbean and Pacific States (OACPS) and the European Union, and co-funded by the French Development Agency (AFD).
