The Jamaica Business Development Corporation (JBDC), is inviting small business operators and business interests in western Jamaica, to attend a two-day business clinic and sensitisation session at the Civic Centre in Montego Bay, St. James, on April 7 and 8.
Dubbed ‘Capitalising on today’s Business Opportunities for tomorrow’s Prosperity,’ the clinic is geared at exposing participants to various means of growing and strengthening their businesses and surviving the economic crisis.
In an interview with JIS News, Public Relations Officer at the JBDC, Sancia Campbell, explained that the business clinic and sensitisation session was part of the Corporation’s thrust in fostering continued business development.
“This is part of JBDC’s ongoing drive to ensure that small business enterprises are ready for the market in terms of their products and services that they are offering,” Miss Campbell outlined.
“We are now experiencing full blown recession, and we want to say to the small business people that yes, things are hard now, but the fact is that when the world turns around, when the economy turns around, you must be ready,” the Public Relations Officer stated.
She explained that the business clinic would include workshops on business planning, record keeping, and how to create a market-ready product.
The JBDC will use the forum to feature its suit of services, including technical and business elements and financial products.
There will also be display booths and presentations from the Companies Office of Jamaica, Tax Audit & Assessment Unit, and the Scientific Research Council.
The business clinic is free of cost and will run from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. both days.
