The Caribbean Association of Investment Promotion Agencies (CAIPA) promotes investment in the Caribbean. CAIPA facilitates the development of studies, resources, and guides that can be used by investors, site selectors, business executives, and professionals.
CAIPA is 23 members strong and came to the Caribbean Investment Forum (March 2022 in Dubai) with several priority sectors that they were looking for investments such as Tourism, Agriculture, ICT, and the Creative sectors.
According to Annette Mark, President of the Caribbean Association of Investment Promotion Agencies, “Those are our main drivers for investment promotion throughout the Caribbean”.
At the Caribbean Investment Forum, Ms. Mark expressed her happiness to be in the UAE as she does believe that there has not been enough exposure of CAIPA members within the UAE, and the UAE itself is an untapped market for CAIPA.
“There’s a lot of liquidity after the covid pandemic and we believe that this conference together with Expo 20 Dubai has given us that opportunity to be on the ground and make contact with a number of agencies, high networked persons, and of course investing in the Caribbean.”
For Ms. Mark, the Caribbean is a safe destination with strong governments and laws protecting investors’ rights. The region is diversifying and growing industries. A growing demand for products and services has opened immense opportunities for investors to find an interest in growing or developing their business in the Caribbean.
