Forty companies and official representatives of institutions based in Martinique, Guadeloupe, Saint-Martin, mainland France, Barbados and Saint Lucia boarded the cruise ship MSC Preziosa in Pointe-à-Pitre (Guadeloupe) for the 2nd Caribbean Business Cruise which takes place from February 9 to 16, 2020.
The innovative business retreat aims to foster partnerships and encourage trade between entrepreneurs of the region.
The 2nd edition of the Caribbean Business Cruise, coordinated by the international development consulting company Isanaja Consulting – which also initiated this innovative concept in 2019, is supported by the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) through its “Competitive Business Unit” (CBU).
The CBU has assisted in mobilizing entrepreneurs and institutions through the national business support organisations in the OECS Member States to ensure that the Caribbean business cruise benefits the largest number of entrepreneurs in each stopover.
Co-founder and Director of Isanaja Consulting, Isabelle Adonis-Flandrina, says the objective of the Caribbean Business Cruise is to bring together a community of businessmen and businesswomen who wish to build, develop and enrich the Caribbean of the future.
