This was to be a dynamic and interactive event to provide a medium for the exchange of ideas and perspectives, and the tabling of challenging ‘yet practical’ solutions to address sustainable, resilient business growth in the OECS.

On the Symposium theme: “Identifying solutions to address business challenges in the OECS within the construct of a global economy,” they presented on the topics Creative Business Leadership, Business Competiveness and Strategic Business Models for ECCU Businesses. Each presentation was followed by an open discussion and questions.

The idea of FIM is the conduct of a regional financial, economic, business and entrepreneurial education campaign executed in the ECCU. It incorporates a series of initiatives designed to support the attainment of the goal of, “a financially developed and bivrant ECCU region that fosters strong and sustainable economic growth and the improved well-being of the citizenry.”
