On September 18, 2021 the Shridath Ramphal Centre for International Trade Law, Policy and Services (SRC) in collaboration with the Barbados Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI), hosted a virtual roundtable discussion on Food Security in CARICOM. At the end of this session the two entities announced that their partnership would continue in the form of an upcoming Agri-Trade Lab.
The SRC and BCCI are proud to announce that on December 10, 2021 the SRC-BCCI Agri-Trade Lab pilot project will be officially launched. The Agri-Trade Lab will connect local farmers and agro-processors with researchers at the SRC capable of leveraging their technical expertise to solve various agri-trade related challenges faced by the project’s participants.
Some of the agri-trade challenges this lab is positioned to address include, but are not limited to, market intelligence & analysis; market access & market penetration matters; sanitary and Phytosanitary (SPS) measures; technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) measures; trade-related aspects of intellectual property rights; and more!
Local farmers and agro-processors who are involved in agri-trade, or who are interested in pursuing trade opportunities can apply to be part of this free pilot project by completing the required application form which is available on the SRC website: www.shridathramphalcentre.com or by clicking here. Application forms should be submitted electronically by emailing Mrs. Chelcee Brathwaite (SRC Trade Researcher) at email@example.com and Ms. Shanice Haynes (BCCI Research Officer) at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than January 31, 2022.
