The Full Story
Small and medium-sized tourism enterprises (SMTEs) are set to benefit from a Business Development Information Session being hosted by the Tourism Enhancement Fund (TEF) on Wednesday, November 22.
The session, to be held under the theme ‘Maximising Tourism Market Opportunities’, is slated for the Courtleigh Auditorium in Kingston beginning 9:30 a.m.
The event is among initiatives organised for SMTEs by the TEF, through its Tourism Linkages Network.
It aims to bring key development experts together to enhance SMTEs’ ability to supply the tourism and hospitality sector with requisite goods and services, thereby enabling them to absorb a greater share of the industry’s earnings.
Owners and operators of SMTEs in attendance will be able to take advantage of various products and services available within the public and private sectors, to aid with the growth and expansion of their businesses.
Among the entities that will be showcased are the Jamaica Business Development Corporation (JBDC), Bureau of Standards Jamaica (BSJ), Scientific Research Council (SRC), Jamaica Intellectual Property Office (JIPO), Jamaica Promotions Corporation (JAMPRO), National Export-Import Bank of Jamaica (EXIM Bank), Companies Office of Jamaica (COJ), Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ) and Jamaica National (JN) Bank.
