St. Vincent and the Grenadines will have a national export strategy by December 2019. The project has been in the pipeline since 2004, however, could not take off until now, due to lack of funding.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Commerce officially launched the consultancy to develop this country’s national export strategy late last month.
Director of Trade Okolo John-Patrick, in welcoming participants, said she was happy to see so many persons at the launch.
John-Patrick said the Trade Department has been trying to get the strategy at this final stage for a while and that they are excited to have a launch.
She expressed hope that it “will proceed quickly and successfully”, adding that the consultants will be in SVG until Aug. 9, 2019 and will present the final document in December.
