Look To Africa For Market Opportunities

Barbados Prime Minister Mia Mottley has called for leaders in the Caribbean region to capitalize on the vast African market for business opportunities.

At a panel discussion on Regional Transformation for Inclusive and Sustainable Growth recently, Ms. Mottley urged the regional bloc to remove its own barriers to intra-CARICOM trade while looking to the African continent’s potential.

She argued that the Caribbean was linked to Africa by a common ocean and direct flights and had not even begun to capitalize on a major trading opportunity.
