(Caribbean News Now): BRIDGETOWN, Barbados -- A meeting of the Caribbean’s investment promotion agencies (IPAs) is scheduled to take place on November 27 and 28, 2012, in The Bahamas.
Entitled “Strengthening our Foundation, Expanding our Reach”, the two-day conference will explore strategic approaches for increased collaboration between investment promotion agencies within the framework of a Caribbean Association of Investment Promotions Agencies (CAIPA).
Site selection firms have noted that investors view the Caribbean region as a whole, prior to fine-tuning their selection processes to a single territory. Therefore, in the promotion of the region, the objectives of integration can be enhanced, by the strengthening of the Caribbean as an economic bloc. This will increase the attractiveness of the investment proposition and the likelihood of securing investments to any single territory.
