The interim committee was able to solicit support through the Caribbean Association of Small and Medium Enterprises (CASME) to hold a strategic planning workshop. The workshop was held on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week at the Conference Room of the Centre for Enterprise Development (CED).

The SBA’s main objective is to lobby on behalf of small businesses locally and regionally. It hopes to offer benefits such as: networking, training, institutional support to members and business advisory services. The Centre for Enterprise has been providing technical support to the organization thus far.
