Investment and Trade Opportunities between African American and Caribbean Enterprises

The BPIA Business and Economic Development Committee continues its Virtual Forum series with this event, which seeks to provide a platform for a discussion around the investment and trade opportunities between US-based African American enterprises and Caribbean-based entrepreneurs.
In addition to exploring the macroeconomic and B2B trends, opportunities and challenges, attendees will also benefit from hearing the personal experiences of an entrepreneur who has created (and is growing) business links in the US and the Caribbean.
This event will feature:
Amb. Matthew Wilson, Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Barbados to the United Nations and Other International Organizations in Geneva
Mr. Daniel F. Runde, Senior Vice President and Schreyer Chair in Global Analysis, Center for Strategic and International Studies
Mr. Deodat Maharaj, Executive Director, Caribbean Export Development Agency
Ms. Kaye-Anne Greenidge, CEO, Invest Barbados
Ms Dorrette Watson, Managing Director, D’NexStep Sandals and Accessories Ltd., Kingston, Jamaica
