The idea was to eliminate barriers for SMEs by doing these three things:
- Providing access to trustworthy clients abroad
- Access to practical info for international trade
- Access to financing for SMEs
The entire platform is free, financed by the IDB.
CRS General Manager, Shinelle Padmore says, “Thanks to the IDB and Facebook for coming to Trinidad and Tobago to launch Connect Americas. It is an inexpensive way for Caribbean Resourcing Solutions to have Global reach. We will use this platform to facilitate trade, export, and the sharing of ideas”
