IDB clinics for national business community

Published on May 23, 2017, 8:12 pm AST

On Monday 15 and Tuesday 16 May, the Ministry of Planning and Development, in conjunction with the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), hosted a two-day clinic for the Skills For Global Services, at the Kapok Hotel, St Clair. Clinic facilitators included consultants Mr Geoff Fieldsend, Dr Moreiça Allana-Kim Ortega and Ms Rhea Yaw Ching, as well as IDB Labour Markets and Social Security Specialist, Ms Carolina Gonzalez; and Project Manager for Skills for Global Services Ms Joy Lange-Syriac. The private sector was very well-represented at the event, as dozens of businesses across Trinidad and Tobago attended to receive technical assistance with their proposal design for this publicly-funded opportunity, a release from the IDB said on Thursday. “The Skills For Global Services initiative, which falls under the aegis of the Global Services Promotion Programme (GSPP), opened its call for proposals on March 29, and has since received an overwhelming response from businesses, firms and coalitions nationwide,” the release said.
