Fourth Caribbean Business Cruise hopes to facilitates small business collaboration between islands

Isabelle Adonis Flandrina

A group of businessmen and women visiting from Guadeloupe and Martinique who formed part of the fourth Edition of the Caribbean Business Cruise were given the opportunity to interact with small business owners in Dominica during a mini expo held at the Alliance Françaises on Monday.

The group is visiting for the second time and made its first stop in Dominica, followed by St Maarten, then to Antigua and Barbuda, St Kitts and Nevis, with the tour culminating in Martinique.

The cruise will run from February 25 to March 3, 2024.

“The idea of this mission is to get to know people from Guadeloupe better, the way to do business and you the Dominican people you can know what we do and what sectors we are interested to do business,” Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of INSANJA International Management and Consulting Isabelle Adonis-Flandrina said during an interview with the media.

She continued, “We are here for the second time. We came in 2020 before the Covid and unfortunately, everything stopped and we are back today two years after and we are very happy to be here to discuss how we can do business with Dominica.”

Flandrina said she is looking forward to building solid partnerships with businesses in Dominica and the other Caribbean islands they will be visiting.

Some of the small businesses present at the event included Jaydees Natural, Heaven Scent, Bees Natural, Dominica Craft Association, Hey Mama, Seacliff Cottages and Gin, and Eclat Nova Luxuries.

    It is my experience that Martinique only pay lip service to wanting to do business with the OECS, Martinique does everything it possibly can to make doing business with Martinique as difficult as possible. I do business with both Guadeloupe and Martinique and I can tell you that Martinique have no interest in doing business with OECS, Guadeloupe is different Guadeloupe is open for business.

      I have a different experience Mike. I have had positive interactions and trade with Martinique. Sorry your experience has been a negative one. Would love to know more about Guadeloupe as well
