The Barbados Investment and Development Corporation (BIDC) will this Thursday, May 26, launch its Export Readiness Training Initiative.
The Programme, which is being held in collaboration with the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus, is geared at enhancing the level of export marketing and management expertise within the ranks of the small and medium enterprise manufacturing community.
It is also aimed at creating a platform to empower the export sector to expand its contribution to national development, employment and the acquisition of foreign exchange.
Among the target audience for the initiative will be graduate students enrolled in the UWI’s marketing programmes. It is hoped that the training would enrich their learning experiences, particularly the in-plant attachments.
