(July 13, 2012) -- Last week, in Belize City, Belize, International Trade Center senior international business consultant Monica Alcoz and international business consultant Barbara Mooney conducted a hands-on training on how to provide successful assistance services to Small Medium Enterprises (SMEs) based on the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) model. The July 4-5 module focused on providing high-value consulting, market research and training assistance.
Providing one-on-one, long-term consulting services to SMEs and relevant market research and training is critical when trying to maximize the creation and capture of economic impact. More than 10 economic development agencies, bankers, trade agencies and chambers participated including Belize Trade and Investment Development Service (Beltraide), the local private, government and civil sector partnership supporting investment and trade activities. The event was hosted at the Belize City House of Culture.
"The attendees were very engaged through the two-full day training," said Alcoz. "We are excited to help expand the Small Business Network of the Americas in Belize. We see a great opportunity for great impact in this community and for increasing trade among our SMEs."
The event was organized by the International Trade Center in partnership with Beltraide with the support of the U.S. State Department Mission to the Organization of American States, the Organization of American States (OAS) and the Caribbean Export.
