2 Tradewatch COMPETITIVENESS & INNOVATION Continued from page 1 This year s event will take place at the Grand Lucayan Resort in Freeport on the island of Grand Bahama, Bahamas on June 20-23, Design Caribbean boasts over 100 regional exhibitors with more than 1000 products - it is the place to spot future talent and emerging brands and where visitors leave with a true sense of the diversity and creativity that breathes vibrancy into the Caribbean region. Design Caribbean is truly committed to quality, in terms of show presentation and promotion as well as having a selective approach to exhibitors alongside a comprehensive roster of the best media, international and regional buyers and industry partners across the region. Firms to access Financing under DAGS The next Call for Proposals (CFP) for the Direct Assistance Grant Scheme (DAGS) will be published in August Prior to this launch Caribbean Export will be promoting the grant funding facility across the 15 CARIFORUM States, and offering proposal writing training in Member States which have historically had lower success rates for approval. To date a total of 142 grants have been awarded during the period ; 92 under the Regular Procedure and 50 under the Accelerated Procedure. We associate these results with our continued efforts to enhance technical capacity among firms and BSOs in the area of proposal writing across all 15 CARIFORUM States, commented Kirk Brown, Senior Grant Advisor. Caribbean Export has incorporated recommendations provided by stakeholders during the last round of training workshops held in CARIFORUM Member States and have revised the application form and guidelines for the Accelerated and Regular facilities. The most notable change is that beneficiaries (Signatories) of a grant contract under any Call for Proposals published during the period will not be eligible to apply in In order to be eligible for a grant, applicants must satisfy the following criteria: not be a Beneficiary (signatory) of a Grant Contract under any Call for Proposals published during the period be a firm (i.e. entity, individual or company) legally registered and operating in a CARIFORUM state; or be a legally registered Business Support Organization (BSOs) in a CARIFORUM state partnering with at least two (2) private sector firms; be firms trading and operational for at least two (2) years supported by last two years financial statements/accounts (no start-ups); be able to finance and sustain their projects fully at the beginning; that is 100% financing is available prior to project initiation; and be exporting or demonstrate their potential to export goods and services; The funding amounts remain unchanged for both facilities; 5,000 for the Accelerated Procedures and 30,000 for the Regular Procedures. These amounts represent the maximum sums to be reimbursed to beneficiaries. No funding assistance may exceed 70% ( 30,000 and 5,000) for the Regular and Accelerated Procedures respectively. Further information on the Direct Assistance Grant Scheme may be obtained from Caribbean Export s website and the Senior Grant Advisor, Kirk Brown at com.

4 Tradewatch TRADE & EXPORT DEVELOPMENT Trade Information Training for the Dominican Republic Participants of the Trade Information Training Programme, Data Processing and Collection Mechanism Training in the Dominican Republic Over twenty five (25) Business Support Organisations (BSOs) across the region are expected to participate in a regional workshop aimed at building their institutional capacities for delivering enhanced trade information services to their respective private sectors. This will be achieved through delivery of the 2nd Regional Trade Information Training Programme and Data Processing and Collection Mechanisms Training from February 25 to March 2, 2013 at the Hotel Magna 365 (formerly Hotel Nacional) in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. This workshop is conducted by Caribbean Export Development Agency (Caribbean Export) under the EU funded 10th EDF Regional Private Sector Development Programme in partnership with the International Trade Centre, Geneva. The overall objective of the programme is to build capacity within the BSOs for providing enhanced trade information services such as business intelligence analysis, data collection and processing. This initiative is part of a wider programme of increasing the competitiveness of the regional private sector and involves the development of a regional market intelligence portal and the formation of management structures at the national and regional levels that would allow for more effective engagement of the private sector by BSOs based on the trade information needs for SMEs that have been identified. According to David Gomez, Manager Trade and Export Development at Caribbean Export, The programme has been strengthened but maintains an integrated approach that aims to provide technical competence for utilizing readily available tools for providing trade information services. It also provides specialized training to build capacity for managing data sources and organizing BSOs at the national level into trade information networks. Gomez further added that it continues to be important for the initiative to be understood within the broader context of the programme of private sector development being undertaken by Caribbean Export and that it is only one in a number of programmes and initiatives that have been refined and that will be made available over the next few years. The Regional Trade Information Training Programme will cover topics that help to improve trade information services through better management performance and knowledge of information sources; improve information research services through better knowledge of information research tools and techniques; and deal with issues relevant to establishing a regional trade information network within CARIFORUM and including mechanisms for information exchange. For this, the 2nd Regional Workshop, the agenda has been shortened to six days (instead of eight) and features a couple of new sessions on external trade information sources which augment the regional trade and market intelligence portal being developed by Caribbean Export that is expected to launch shortly. For additional information and interview opportunities about the Training Programme, please feel free to contact Mr David Gomez, Manager, Trade and Export Development at Participant registering for Trade Indormation Training with the assistance of Caribbean Export personnel 4 Tradewatch The Official E-Newsletter of the Caribbean Export Development Agency Vol. 7 No. 1 January-February, 2013

5 Tradewatch SUCCESS STORY Animation has come Full Circle Established in 2006, Full Circle Animation Studios is a state-ofthe-art design studio that focuses on animation, out-sourcing in 2D Animation and 3D Effects. The studio currently employs 10 persons full time and up to 20 on a project basis. The Studio also specializes in Real Flow technology, new-media production and training. Full Circle enjoys a vibrant environment that complements their young dynamic artists, animators, graphic designers and illustrators. The studio team has successfully completed several big animation projects and comprises of inhouse animators that have been trained in-house over the last two years. Full Circle is also the parent of the industry renowned annual Animae Caribe Animation Festival in Trinidad and Tobago. In June 2012, Full Circle participated in Caribbean Export Development Agency s Study Tour to Europe. The 2-week tour visited Berlin, Paris and Manchester consisted business-to-business meetings, site visits, high-level meetings and presentations, and the opportunity to participate in sector-specific missions and shows. The objective of the Study Tours were to expose CARIFORUM firms and Caribbean Export Week March 17-22, 2013, Barbados entrepreneurs in the Creative Industries sector to key players in the respective markets, develop business opportunities where possible, gather information about the regulatory environment, and to promote the development of instruments that can facilitate partnerships and possible joint ventures. Following the Study Tour to Europe, collaborative links were made with not only regional participants, but also more notably with potential business partners in Berlin and Paris. During the visit to Berlin, a business connection was made with Kevin Booker, Founder of Pop E.B. a video documentation company, which produces online media. The visit to the film festival office in Germany has also paid off in terms of the networking prospects that are available. France is considered to be one of the major success points of the Tour. Subsequent to the visit to Paris, Xilam - a French production company that specializes in animated series feature films has been in contact with the Studio and have shown interest in the body of work completed by the Trinidad and Tobagobased company. Full Circle is also currently completing a studio test (an assessment to determine aptitude, creativity and efficiency) with Xilam. Once successful, it is anticipated that both studios will collaborate on various animation projects. Other benefits still evolving include networking opportunities with CARICOM production firms and Animators in the Diaspora. Full Circle has targeted both North America and Europe as two major export markets but domestic and regional consumption is a first priority, shared Camille Abrahams, Chief Executive Officer. Abrahams also sees a great potential for regional animators to be highly successful in Europe and believes that further Study Tours similar to the one recently hosted by Caribbean Export is the ideal platform for the exploration of tangible benefits beyond basic networking.
