The Grenada Coalition of Service Industries will expand on export planning by hosting the full SGG training (Services Go Global) programmes18-22 March 2019 at the Grenada Youth Center. This emphasises their continued efforts to build the export capabilities of Grenadian service providers and producers.
The GCSI is delighted to work with Small, Medium and Micro-sized Enterprises (SMMEs) to enhance their capacity as they continue to compete on the regional market. Thus, the GCSI looks forward to continually working to aid service providers and producers in fulfilling their dreams, and aspirations.
