The Dominica Association of Industry and Commerce (DAIC) invites its Members, Exporters, Importers, and other all with interest in leveraging the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) and Market Intelligence tools to attend this 3-Part Series hosted on October 19th, November 9th and December 13th from 6:00 – 8:00 PM via Zoom.
Economic Partnership Agreements are good opportunities for micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) to engage in the development of a strategy to adapt to a globalizing economy.
MSMEs make up a majority of the domestic business transactions and are critical in emerging economies, however, only play a limited role in international trade. Given their size and diversity of sectors, MSMEs are highly adaptable between the developed and developing economies, provided that trade barriers are negated.
Accordingly, MSMEs are global economies’ greatest marginal opportunity for growth if they are actively engaged in EPA implementation and their trade issues are effectively addressed. Issues unique to MSMEs relate to the need for trade reforms in areas such as Access to Markets; Access to Technology; Access to Finance; and Access to Skills.
