Episode 17: A 1:1 Conversation About Reviving The Manufacturing Sector In Barbados & The Wider CARICOM Region

“We cannot continue to look at manufacturing in its generic sense.”

Listen in with host Collis Williams and former Technical Advisor to the CARICOM Secretariat’s Office of Trade Negotiations, Joel Richards, on how we can revitalize manufacturing in Barbados and the wider CARICOM region.

Should we be looking at the core concept of manufacturing through a wider lens? Should we focus more on mass customization rather than mass production? Do we have the capacity to be a competitive manufacturing base on the world market?

We tackle these critical questions and more, as we discuss some of the strategies that can be employed to ensure manufacturing in the Caribbean both survives and thrives.
