Over 120 executives of international, national and local firms in the United States and the Caribbean as well as elected officials in State and local government legislatures are invited to participate in the 17th Annual Caribbean Multi-National Business Conference which is set to place at the Ritz Carlton resort in Montego Bay, Jamaican between November 8th through 11th. Here, corporate executives from the U.S. join their Jamaican and Caribbean counterparts in panel discussions and private meetings to explore opportunities for doing business.
Karl Rodney, the Publisher of the Newspaper and host of this conference, Carib News says “The global economy continues to experience challenging times, especially in Europe, the United States, Latin America and parts of Africa, Asia and the Caribbean.
“It’s also a time for entrepreneurs to take advantage of business opportunities. For example, our Caribbean neighbor, Jamaica is experiencing a boost in tourism, manufacturing, agriculture, and construction. Jamaica can benefit from the thinking that pervades America’s executive suites and corporate boardrooms, and as a country, it is well-placed to attract new investments in a variety of areas.”
Aside from Jamaica, the business conference will also help present international trade and business opportunities for entrepreneurs and foreign investors elsewhere in the Americas.
Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, the Reverend Andrew Young; a former editor and publisher of Essence magazine, Susan Taylor; NBC Universal’s chief diversity officer and one of the high-ranking television executives, Paula Madison; and Macy’s Senior Vice President, Ed Goldberg are expected to participate in the conference.
