Government’s support for small businesses to increase, says Minister Duggins

The role played by the small businesses in the growth of the country’s economy is an important one and it is receiving the Federal Government’s attention. Going forward the Ministry of Small Business and Entrepreneurship will give them the support that will enable them to graduate into medium businesses and finally large businesses.

The Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries, Marine Resources and Cooperatives; Small Business and Entrepreneurship; Sports and the Creative Economy, the Hon Samal Duggins, has also said that collaboration between his ministries will be used as a vehicle to help the businesses grow.

This was witnessed on Tuesday evening December 6 when the Small Business Development Centre (SBDC) of the Ministry of Small Business and Entrepreneurship, in collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture, held the inaugural Small Night Small Business Expo at the Basseterre Public Market under theme ‘Moving Business Forward’.
