The Caribbean Export Development Agency (Caribbean Export) in collaboration with the Caribbean Association of Investment Promotion Agencies (CAIPA) will host the 3rd staging of the Caribbean Investment Summit on May, 13, 2016 at the Marriott Hotel, Miami, USA. The event will be funded and co-organised by the Inter-American Development Bank as a part of a regional public goods initiative entitled: Support to Foreign Direct Investment in the Caribbean.
Produced with support from Financial Times’ fDi Magazine, the Caribbean Investment Summit offers a unique window for investors to the region to discover diverse opportunities available to them, and aims to attract a wealth of potential investors interested in the dynamic Caribbean brand.
Following the success of two previous events in London and Mexico, the Summit will bring focus to the region’s key industry sectors: renewable energy, business process outsourcing (BPO) and niche tourism. Continuing under the theme, ‘The Climate is Right in the Caribbean,’ the event will provide an unmatched platform for regional Investment Promotion Agencies, senior government officials and Ministers of Government to expose their ‘shovel ready projects’ to prospective investors in their newest target market, the United States.
Over 100 high net worth individuals and investors are poised to gather at this year’s Summit which will once again be emceed by Courtney Fingar, Editor in Chief, fDi Magazine, Financial Times Group. The event also seeks to take advantage of the proximity of the United States to the Caribbean, as the region continues to target strategic investors under the rollout of the recently developed Regional Investment Promotion Strategy. At this years’ event awards will be given to the Regional Investor of the Year and those in attendance will hear first-hand from investors who have successfully invested in the region.
