Cham­ber SME “Fi­nance Buzz”

The Star (St. Lucia) - - BUSINESS -

On July 25, 2017 at the Fi­nance Ad­min­is­tra­tion Cen­tre in Point Seraphine, the Saint Lu­cia Cham­ber of Com­merce, In­dus­try and Agri­cul­ture will host its SME Fi­nance Buzz.

This is a pur­pose-built event, de­signed specif­i­cally to help the Cham­ber bet­ter un­der­stand the needs of its mem­bers in the area of “Im­prov­ing Knowl­edge of and Ac­cess to Fi­nance”. This fo­rum will help in­form the work of the project funded by the Ger­man Sav­ings Bank Foun­da­tion, “Fi­nan­cial In­clu­sion of Small and Medium Sized En­ter­prises in the East­ern Caribbean Cur­rency Union” which is be­ing pi­loted in Saint Lu­cia where the Cham­ber is an im­ple­ment­ing part­ner.

Mem­bers will be brought up to date on the work of the Cham­ber and will dis­cuss spe­cific is­sues and ar­eas where they wish the Cham­ber and the project to pro­vide sup­port in “Im­prov­ing Knowl­edge of and Ac­cess to Fi­nance”. There­after there will be a short pre­sen­ta­tion on “Key Per­for­mance In­di­ca­tors for SMEs – Key for Suc­cess” by Dr. Juer­gen En­gel, Project Man­ager of the Ger­man Sav­ings Bank Foun­da­tion who has had decades of ex­pe­ri­ence in SME devel­op­ment in Ger­many and around the world. He will im­part some of his knowl­edge on SME devel­op­ment and plac­ing SMEs in a bet­ter fi­nan­cial po­si­tion.

The Cham­ber in­tends to use the fo­rum to iden­tify ar­eas of sup­port which mem­bers may need and hopes that the tar­geted mem­bers come out in large num­bers for the event.
