(Aug. 2, 2012) -– The International Trade Center at UTSA in partnership with the Organization of American States, Caribbean Export and the U.S. Department of State will conduct the fourth and closing module of the certificate training for future SBDC counselors and directors Sept. 5 in Belize City, Belize.
The certificate training transfers the SBDC methodology and prepares future SBDC staff that will operate the center. It also has guided the Belize Trade and Investment Agency (Beltraide) as well as other public, private and academic sector representatives in the process of developing the operational plan of the center they will operate.
"We are excited that Belize has taken the initiative to host the first pilot SBDC in the Caribbean region," said Cliff Paredes, director of the International Trade Center. "We look forward to collaborating with Beltraide, Caribbean Export and the Organization of American States in making the new SBDC a success for the MSME sector in Belize. The new center will help Belize create jobs, bring more companies in the formal sector and grow exports by connecting to other SBDC networks through SBDCGlobal.com."
Beltraide will host the first Small Business Development Center in Belize City, Belize, which will be inaugurated in fall 2012.
