The High Export Potential Programme (HIEXPO) recently launched by Invest SVG will raise the quality of local export products.
The programme, which is the brainchild of management of Invest SVG, is supported by the Caribbean Export Development Agency (CEDA).
Deputy Executive Director of Invest SVG Nadine Agard Juillerat said Invest SVG wants small and large enterprises to achieve their full potential; hence the task of the organisation is to make that possible.
She said Invest SVG would focus on export development this year.
“Export development has a lot of ramifications; trade, GDP ramifications, food security. Export development carries weight.”
“HIEXPO programme entails giving exporters who have high export readiness a “push” to help them to get outside and find markets, she added.
Also addressing the launch held at the conference room of Invest SVG was Chairman of the Board, Anthony Regisford.
Mr. Regisford said the programme is fully endorsed by the Board of Directors, and expressed his delight that Invest SVG has seen it fit to emphasize or give a lot more focus on the question of export development.
