The Caribbean Export Development Agency (Caribbean Export) is implementing the 11th European Development Fund (EDF) Regional Private Sector Development Programme (RPSDP) which inter alia seeks to increase employment creation, inclusiveness, particularly for youth, women and indigenous groups, and overall poverty reduction in CARIFORUM states. Considering this, Caribbean Export launched the initiative: Women Empowered through Export (WE-Xport) on March 7, 2018. The programme takes the form of a strategic incubation approach for the duration of twelve months where support is provided to twenty (20) women-owned businesses within CARIFORUM, towards the improvement of their export development and competitiveness.
One significant component of the WE-Xport programme is to advocate on issues and public policies that negatively affect female entrepreneurs. As such Caribbean Export proposes to develop an online podcast programme with the aim of:
- Raising awareness around the issues affecting women business owners
- Cultivating the growth of an export culture among the female private sector
- Raising the profile of trade and exports among a mass market audience
Caribbean Export requires a producer or production team to develop and produce up to 12 radio podcasts intended for online transmission.
