The Saint Lucia Trade Export Promotion Agency (TEPA) in collaboration with the Caribbean Export Development Agency (CEDA), will be offering the second of three (3) modules, Cost and Financial Management from the PRONET Training Programme to Small and Medium sized Enterprises (SMEs) and other interested persons. This training workshop will be held on October 14th-16th at the Conference Room of the Ministry of Infrastructure, Port Services and Transport from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The first program was the Business Strategy module and from all accounts it was a huge success. Participants were pleased with the interactive nature of the course and lauded the way in which the facilitator, Mr. Ramesh Ramdeen, articulated the focal points and gave many real world examples, making it very easy to understand. They were also engaged in numerous exercises attesting to the interactive nature of the tutoring. Mr. Kevin Jones of Caribbean Export Development Agency was pleased with the cross section of participants from public and private sectors who offer Saint Lucian goods and services.
