Summit of the Americas
The President of the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce and Industry Chandradat Chintamani is hoping that the region’s private sector could create a network to put forward the many challenges that the region faces due to the global financial crises. Member States of the Americas will participate in a private sector forum of the Fifth Summit of the Americas which will be held in Trinidad this week.
The private sector forum will examine the opportunities for growth and renewal for business in light of the economic crises and the need for investment in agribusiness and renewable energy.
The private sector forum will also look at human prosperity, competitive advantages with the business sector and the sustenance of profits.
The GCCI President said he is looking forward to the benefits of the summit since local businesses, especially the manufacturing sector is already feeling the pressure of the global economic crises.
The private sector forum will be held on the 15th and 16th of April, under the theme, “Promoting Private Sector led prosperity in the emerging decade: the quest for competitiveness revisited”.
The Fifth Summit of the Americas is expected to deliver measurable outcomes that will make a real difference on the lives of people in the region.
