The Government of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, with support from the Caribbean Development Bank, is preparing a Service Sector Strategy and Action Plan to promote inclusive growth.
The strategy will respond to gender specific needs of persons in accessing opportunities in service industries having export potential, namely: Creative Industries, Information and Communication Technology (ICT); Spa/Wellness Tourism; and Professional/Business Services.
Consultants from A-Z Information Jamaica Ltd., from Tuesday, 7th to Thursday, 9th February, conducted focus groups with Vincentian youths (ages 15 - 24 years), in communities across the country, and with the community College. The activities formed part of wider stakeholder consultations, which have, to date, included more than 70 persons from the public and private sector and civil society. The project runs from August 2016 to March 2017.
