CARICOM and Chile South-south Cooperation continues with focus on Regional Trade
BY Mark Murray
Over the next two days, Government officials and experts from the agency responsible for international trade and investment from eight CARICOM States are meeting here in Georgetown, as part of a Regional trade seminar.
The sessions are being facilitated here at the CARICOM Secretariat through the Government of Chile and CARICOM Member States. The main objective of the seminar is to share experiences and information on Chile’s trade policy, investment and trade promotion.
The Ambassador of Chile to Guyana, Claudio Rojas, said the session is one way of building economic diplomacy given the complexity of trade globally.
He feels when efforts are aligned with different players but with common goal and objective, it’s a challenge and opportunity to move forward.
CARICOM’s Assistant Secretary-General for Trade and Economic Integration believes the seminar demonstrates collaboration among what he sees as partners for many years.
Meanwhile, Guyana’s Minister of Business, Dominic Gaskin said Chile can be considered as one of Latin America economic success stories which were built on sound policies and strong regulatory framework.
During the seminar Chile’s trade policy, market access, regulatory measures, intellectual property, service and investment, labour, pacific alliance, and export promotion will be addressed.
The seminar which started today will end on April 6, 2017.
