This year marks the start of the Compete Caribbean Partnership Facility (CCPF).
The objectives of CCPF are to (i) to support firms to grow, innovate and enter new sectors and markets; and (ii) to promote an environment that enables innovation and growth by focusing on two strategic pillars: Promoting Productivity and Innovation in Firms (Pillar I); and Enhancing the Business and Innovation Climate (Pillar II). CCPF will build on the successes of Compete Caribbean but will place greater emphasis on building national capacity to sustain the results achieved; increasing access to program benefits among women and the youth; and climate change.
To this effect, we are pleased to invite regional and national institutions to submit a maximum of three proposals for Business Climate Reforms under Pillar 2 of the CCPF. The deadline for submission is September 30, 2017. The guidelines for submission and screening criteria are detailed here.
