A special meeting of Vincentian business owners, business professionals, business students and other persons interested in creating a Vincentian diaspora business organisation or a chamber of commerce will be held at Friends of Crown Heights Educational Center, 671 Prospect Place, Brooklyn, New York on June 7, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The meeting is organised by three major organisations: the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Diaspora Committee of New York, Inc., the Consulate General Office of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and the Council of St. Vincent and the Grenadines Organizations USA, Inc.,(COSAGO).

The purpose of the meeting is to inform the Vincentian diaspora of intention to establish an SVG Diaspora business organization or a chamber of commerce and to encourage business-oriented Vincentians in the diaspora to join the membership of the SVG business organisation, which will serve as an umbrella body for all Vincentian owned business and professionals in the U.S.

  1. This is good news and bad news. I like the ideas expressed in the above document. However why not establish a North American organization? It could also include the UK and Europe and anywhere Vincentians reside.
    I’ve always maintain that SVG nationals worldwide should have had a chance to invest in the airport. We could have owned a piece of the rock to leave for our descendants. There are so many ideas and thing we can do to help the economy in SVG, but it needs thorough planning and transparency to avoid issues like the SVG bank, the T&T insurance scheme and the Building and Loan Bank fiasco.
    There are many returnees who’ve lost money due to bad advice and poor planning. I am sure those at home and those abroad can accomplish much to help SVG and SVG nationals. The government should have someone who knows the rules and regulations thoroughly, visit overseas to explain to proper rules and regulations to people in the DIASPORA.
