Nordicity to develop CARICOM’s Strategic Plan for the Cultural Industries
Posted by Carly Frey in Vancouver on Jul 06, 2016

Together with University of the West Indies Consulting (UWI), Nordicity has been commissioned by the Caribbean Community and Common Market (known as CARICOM) to prepare a regional plan for the cultural and entertainment industries in its 15 member states.                                                

The CARICOM Secretariat has recently embarked on a programme to facilitate the growth and development of the creative industries of the Caribbean. It is expected that the comprehensive action plan will facilitate investment by key stakeholders, as well as articulate a strategy that will aid CARICOM states in responding to the dynamic business and entrepreneurial needs of its creative sectors. The strategic plan will also identify means of achieving internationally-proven best practices and global competitiveness across the various sub-sectors of the creative industries.

CARICOM is an organization founded to promote regional economic integration and cooperation. The organization now currently consists of 15 Caribbean nations and dependencies, including: Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Grenada, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, St Kitts and Nevis, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname, and Trinidad and Tobago.
