(Barbados Government Information Service) Regional female entrepreneurs have been told that they are important contributors to their countries’ Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

Minister in the Ministry of Foreign Trade, Sandra Husbands, made this observation during the closing ceremony of the Caribbean Export Development Agency’s WE-Xport Programme, held at the Hilton Barbados Resort, recently.

The programme was designed to help female entrepreneurs start exporting, or to increase exports, of their products and services. Nineteen women successfully completed the one-year programme.

Minister Husbands noted: “While you may think your business is small; while you may think you are struggling to make ends meet; while you have issues from time to time with cash flow; every single penny that you turn over in your business contributes to the GDP of your country. Therefore, what you do every day is not only important to you and your family, it is important to your country.”
