OECS firms to Showcase at Specialty Caribbean Expo 2017

Over 50 SMEs to feature in multi sectoral Trade Exposition

Specialty Caribbean Expo 2017 – the largest Trade Show of its kind to be staged in the OECS – is set for a stellar showcase at the Daren Sammy Cricket Ground from March 9 - 12. The OECS Commission is collaborating with St. Lucia’s Trade Export Promotion Agency (TEPA) and the Ministry of Commerce in staging the high profile trade show, which is expected to add impetus to the drive to increase intra-regional trade in goods and services, as well as the export of OECS goods and services to regional and international markets.

Over 100 Exhibitors have confirmed their participation in the Expo, which will feature export-ready goods and services under the theme “A Unique Buying Experience.” Exporters from the OECS and Martinique will present and promote their products and services at this buyer-focused exhibition. Specialty Caribbean Expo 2017 will be the ultimate one-stop-shop, directly linking international buyers from worldwide corporations with Caribbean suppliers from a multitude of sectors including apparel and footwear, financial services, food and beverage, furniture, handicraft, health and wellness, tourism, printing and packaging services. Buyers from the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Cuba, CARICOM and the Eastern Caribbean are expected to participate in the 4-day trade show.

The OECS Competitive Business Unit (CBU) has mobilized several producers and service providers from within its client portfolio, to participate in the Expo. Business Development Officer, Sobers Esprit says the Expo is in line with the objectives of the OECS Regional Integration for Trade Project, being funded by the 10th EDF.

The Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) is an International Organisation dedicated to economic harmonisation and integration, protection of human and legal rights, and the encouragement of good governance among independent and non-independent countries in the Eastern Caribbean. The OECS came into being on June 18th 1981, when seven Eastern Caribbean countries signed a treaty agreeing to cooperate with each other while promoting unity and solidarity among its Members. The Treaty became known as the Treaty of Basseterre, so named in honour of the capital city of St. Kitts and Nevis where it was signed. The OECS today, currently has ten members, spread across the Eastern Caribbean comprising Antigua and Barbuda, Commonwealth of Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, St Vincent and The Grenadines, British Virgin Islands, Anguilla and Martinique.
