The Caribbean Council has mobilised its resources and lessons learned from years of working with the private sector on trade and investment projects, to offer development-specific consultancy services supporting economic development and private sector led growth.
Projects include supporting local capacity building, inclusivity, social engagement and investment, as well as awareness and adaptation to environmental and social sustainability concerns, political risks and corruption risks. For local exporters crucial to the region’s economic growth, we have supported export compliance and new financing.
For international donors, development organisations and governments, we have carried out bespoke qualitative and quantitative research to inform programmes, and policy reform proposals designed to boost economic and commercial development, as well as undertaking programmes of large-scale private sector engagement in the Caribbean and Central America.
