OVERVIEW

The Caribbean Growth Forum is a multi-stakeholder participatory initiative which aims to foster equitable, inclusive and sustainable growth in every country of the region, through the identification of policies and actions that can contribute to the enhancement of private sector led growth.

Participants are invited to join the three Thematic Working Groups of the CGF, namely, (i) Logistics and Connectivity, (ii) Investment Climate and (iii) Skills and Productivity with the aim to prioritize needed actions. The working groups will continue the dialogue over the next 5 weeks and their results will be consolidated into an Action Plan for implementation during 2012.
