Investment

This section focuses on improving the business climate to attract investment that can contribute to sustainable business development in the Caribbean. Efforts to promote investment encounter unique challenges because of the widely dispersed countries with small populations that make up the Caribbean. Our emphasis, therefore, is on activities which are best undertaken at regional or sub-regional rather than at national levels as we promote the Caribbean as a prime destination for intra and extra-regional investment.

Enabling Environment

We foster the development of a regional enabling environment for investment in CARIFORUM countries through addressing issues of standards, protocols and codes of practice. We also undertake research to identify areas and niche opportunities where the Caribbean can gain competitive advantage.

Marketing and Promotion

Caribbean Export is marketing the region as a viable investment destination to attract both investment and investors through the coordination of regional marketing programmes, as well as by providing information on resources and opportunities which will maximise the competitive advantage of each country.

Investment Promotion

Efforts to promote investment encounter unique challenges because of the widely dispersed countries with small populations that make up the Caribbean.

Improvements in the business climate are essential to attracting investment that can contribute to sustainable business development. Investment promotion is particularly important for the development of new export goods and services.

Caribbean Export is the Secretariat for the Caribbean Association of Investment Promotion Agencies (CAIPA). It was launched in 2007 to facilitate the collaboration of regional Investment Promotion Agencies (IPAs). Our emphasis is on activities which are best undertaken at regional or sub-regional rather than at national levels as we promote the Caribbean as a prime destination for intra and extra-regional investment.
