Some of our Export Projects
BMEX 2015 – May 22-25, 2015
The Barbados Manufacturers’ Expo (BMEX) was held on 22nd to 25th May, 2015 at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Center, Two Mill Hill, St. Michael, Barbados.
The team of this year’s expo was “Fortifying Linkages and Saluting Manufacturing Excellence” and the objective of Guyana’s participation at this exposition was to introduce / promote products manufactured /produced in Guyana to the Caribbean Market. Participants were enabled to showcase products manufactured in Guyana, interact with prospective investors / buyers and create linkages with Barbadian businesses whilst being exposed to new opportunities for trade.
Twenty- four manufacturers/exporters from Guyana participated in the exposition and were drawn from the manufacturing, forestry, agro-processing, and handicraft sectors. The exhibits consisted of a range of indoor and outdoor furniture, leather craft, garments, jewellery, straw craft, agro-processing and fruit drinks.
