Micro, small and medium enterprise development will be in the spotlight when Barbados hosts the XV Inter-American Forum on Microenterprise (FOROMIC XV) at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre, October 1-3, 2012.

FOROMIC, organized annually by the Inter-American Development Bank’s (IDB) Multilateral Investment Fund (MIF), is the premier event for the discussion of microenterprise and small business development, microfinance, and innovative entrepreneurial models and solutions in Latin America and the Caribbean. FOROMIC XV is the first held in an English-speaking Caribbean country, which creates exciting opportunities for visitors from Latin America to learn about successful Caribbean companies and projects, and vice versa.

FOROMIC XV, jointly hosted by the MIF and the Government of Barbados, will include representation from the private, public and nonprofit sectors.  Its theme, “Unlocking Entrepreneurship: Towards Innovative Solutions”, underscores the importance of uniting all these diverse stakeholders to exchange experiences and work together for continued economic development region-wide.
