HALIFAX GLOBAL PARTICIPATES IN CARIBBEAN TRADE MISSION

2010-12-01

Halifax Global, represented by Chris Hornberger, was one of 11 delegates participating in the recent multi-sector trade mission to the Caribbean sponsored by the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA) and Nova Scotia Business Inc. (NSBI). The executing agency was EduNova Cooperative Limited, of which Halifax Global is a proud associate member.

The trade mission was based out of Barbados. The Caribbean market (CARICOM) represents $1.8 billion dollars CDN in two-way trade in products and services with Canada (EDC, 2008). This provides significant opportunities for Nova Scotia exporters in many sectors including education/training, engineering, environmental, manufacturing, food processing, information technology, consumer products and other sectors. Halifax Global met with more than 20 organizations including potential partners and clients.
