DAIC visits Martinique

daicMembers of the Executive of the Dominica Association of Industry & Commerce (DAIC) are on a three-day visit (Nov 25 – Nov 27, 2015) to Martinique in response to an invitation from the Martinique Chamber of Commerce.

The Contingent includes DAIC President, Mr. Jeffrey Baptiste as well as its Vice President, Mrs. Kira Thompson-Aird and Mr. Anthony Joseph, Board Director.

During the trip, the Team will visit the Agro-processing Research Center, the Martinique Chamber of Commerce Business School with particular focus on its training program as well as its Registration Centre. The visit’s agenda focus’s heavily on collaboration between the two chambers with a high priority being placed on immediate support for local businesses affected by Tropical Storm Erika and the nation’s overall reconstruction efforts.

The DAIC expects to set firm plans for collaboration between the both Organizations with special emphasis on sharing best practices, and building strong partnerships between businesses in Dominica and Martinique.

    Great initiative, but I need to caution that the same Martinique Chamber did put the DAIC in a $30,000 debt when the two attempted to collaborate to attract EU funding not so many years ago. Careful guys! I also cannot pretend not to have noticed that the DAIC delegation does not include any business owner; just employees; employees in commerce; no representative from industry. Probably this was an oversight. By-the-way, why was no mention made of the CEO as a member of the delegation?
