As part of its contribution to the We Gatherin’ 2020 initiative, the Ministry of Small Business, Entrepreneurship and Commerce will host several activities across the island focused on business, entrepreneurship and the micro small and medium-sized enterprises.
The role and function of the Ministry and its various agencies and departments will also be highlighted.
The activities are being planned by the Small Business Development Unit and members of the public are encouraged to come out and learn more about the Ministry as it moves from parish to parish.
