is an initiative aimed at identifiying practical and implementable policies and activities to induce and create jobs in the Caribbean region through analytical work, knowledge exchange and inclusive dialogue.
To increase the effectiveness of productive development policies in the Caribbean, the Compete Caribbean Program is supporting the the establishment of the Caribbean Center for Competitiveness (CCfC) at the University of the West Indies, St. Augustine Campus in Trinidad and Tobago.
The Center will increase the institutional capacity of the region to generate and share world-class and Caribbean –specific knowledge products on private sector development and competitiveness; and upgrade the technical capacity of academics as well as public and private sector officials on cutting edge approaches to competitiveness, business climate reforms, clustering and SME development. The Center will have the largest online resource library with information on competitiveness in the region. It will also have a flagship training program on competitiveness, as well as a training program for lectureres that teach in universities in the region.
The Caribbean Competitiveness Centre (CCC) was officially launched by the Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago Mrs. Kamla Persad-Bissessar on Friday, March 25th, 2011 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Port of Spain. The ceremony took place during the Arthur Lok Jack Graduate School of Business Distinguished Leadership and Innovation Conference which featured the world-renowned thinker on competitive advantage, Professor Michael Porter.
