BRIDGETOWN---The Caribbean Export Develop-
ment Agency (Caribbean Export) convened a high
level regional consultation to examine the rationale
for market intelligence and its relevance to building
export competitiveness; and to secure agreement
on the development of a regional export strategy.
The consultations took place from June 5- 6 at
the Radisson Aquatica Resort, Barbados and were
attended by stakeholders from across the region.
In her opening remarks executive director for
Caribbean Export, Pamela Coke Hamilton, said:
"Market research and competitive intelligence can
help, and is necessary for helping the Cariforum
private sector to better understand a number of
issues in export markets such as the market entry
requirements for their products, consumer demand
patterns and trends, competitor and substitute
products, distribution networks and the regulatory
requirements that affect their businesses."
Caribbean Export has a mandate under the 10th
EDF Regional Private Sector Development Pro-
gramme (RPSDP) which speaks to the development
of a regional trade and market intelligence system.
The agency s efforts to date have focused on the
delivery of products and services based on the trade
information needs identified by the private sector
and Business Support Organisations (BSOs) across
the region. An important tool in the arsenal is the
Caribbean Export Market Intelligence Portal (CE-
MIP), an online tool which provides searchable
market research features as well as a library of mar-
ket intelligence products.
This consultation meeting also enabled much
needed open dialogue between the stakeholders to
help inform decisions on the formulation of regional
There is a direct link between market intelligence
and export strategy development, which must be
understood if the trajectory of regional exports is
to be augmented.
"We must also identify and select attractive mar-
kets based on global supply and demand trends,
trade flows and market access for our products.
Understanding those markets is invaluable before
engaging in any firm-specific building initiatives,"
Minister of Industry, International Business,
Commerce and Small Business Development
Donville Inniss reiterated the executive director s
remarks, commenting that what is of "paramount
importance for firms is their ability to design and
implement marketing programmes to communicate
the existence of their products within external mar-
kets and to put in place feedback mechanisms
through which they improve on their product offer-
"Far too often we are still going according to gut
feelings or personal contacts. We must accept that
market research is an integral part of the firms
activities into which appropriate human and finan-
cial capital must be invested," he said
Caribbean Export also unveiled an Exporters
Toolkit the aim of which is to provide a suite of
information, guides, and templates to support
region s private sector in their efforts for exporting.
The two-day consultations concluded with stake-
holders endorsing the CE-MIP and confirming the
need for continued build out of the current market
intelligence products such as the Market Pointers
and Market Opportunity Briefs.
Stakeholders also endorsed the development of
regional strategies for agro-processing, creative
industries, and higher-education services but with
a focus on brand development, enhancing access
to the global value chain for regional producers and
exporters, and strengthening of IP elements; and
gave the thumbs-up for the Caribbean Exporter s
Toolkit expected to be launched shortly. (CMC)
