In Mid-May, the Caribbean Export Development Agency (Caribbean Export) and the Trade Facilitation Office Canada (TFOC) signed a Letter of Agreement signalling the start of a strategic alliance between the two organisations.  In welcoming the signing of the Letter of Agreement, Taiana Mora-Ramis, Caribbean Export's Executive Director stated "The Agreement is based on discussions held in Ottawa in late April with TFOC officials and provides a framework for enhancing the export capacity of the region's Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and will also augment the trade support capabilities of Business Support Organisations (BSOs) in the region."

The core elements of the programme to be executed over the period June 2007 - October, 2008 are:

  • Training interventions for services providers and SMEs in the craft and gift sectors

  • Training on investment promotion for regional BSOs

  • A regional services trade mission to Canada

  • Regional participation in Canada's major handicraft trade show

  • Technical assistance to the development of Caribbean Export's online Business Information Centre.
