Export St. Lucia says a March 9th – 13th mission to Grenada and St. Vincent is already starting to bear fruit.
The twelve businesses which comprised the mission say they were very satisfied with preliminary results, since many of them had generated strong leads and positive feedback from their meetings.
There was also a high level of networking and in some instances, services were contracted even before returning to Saint Lucia.
In the case of one household brand, Tolyn Manufacturers Ltd, Managing Director, Mr. Mark Charles, elatedly informed Export Saint Lucia he was preparing to ship a 40-foot container of his products to Saint Vincent.
Mr. Charles said, “This is the best Trade Mission I have been on and the proof is this shipment going out on Tuesday. Export Saint Lucia with support from the Government of Saint Lucia made this happen and I am happy for this kind of support for our businesses. Thanks guys!”
