Entrepreneurs encouraged to take advantage of opportunities in reshaped global supply chains

The Department of Industry and Commerce, in the Federal Ministry of International Trade, Industry, Commerce, and Consumer Affairs, has stepped up efforts in empowering local entrepreneurs to take advantage of realignment in global supply chain management that has been occasioned by the Covid-19 pandemic among others.

“So while Covid-19 is reshaping global supply chains, this crisis can also serve as a catalyst for change and presents an unprecedented opportunity for reform,” observed the Permanent Secretary Mrs Jasemin Weekes, when she addressed participants of a one-day Business Symposium held at the CUNA Conference Centre in West Basseterre, on Wednesday March 01.

The Business Symposium, whose proceedings were chaired by Coordinator, Trade and Business Development, Mr Irvine Daniel Jr. was held under the theme ‘Opportunities for Business Growth through better Supply Chain Management’. While there were over 40 participants at the CUNA Conference Centre, a few more participated virtually.
