(CNS Business): The Department of Commerce and Investments (DCI) is urging local exporters to enter a regional competition to help boost their businesses and enjoy new opportunities. The 2015 Caribbean Exporter of the Year awards are organised by the region’s export development agency and are intended to encourage Caribbean countries to export their goods.

DCI Director Ryan Rajkumarsingh said that Cayman’s commerce sector can benefit from regional recognition.

“Entering this competition allows local companies to get regional recognition amongst peers,” he said. “It also creates opportunities to promote and showcase local products and services to new markets.”

There are six awards up for grabs relating to various types of exports. The Emerging Exporter recognises companies that began selling overseas in the last three years and the Young Exporter is opened to business owners who are 35 years or younger. There are also awards for businesses run by woman and green exporters, while the overall Caribbean exporter award is open to all and looks for firms in line with the vision of ‘taking Caribbean excellence to the world’. A Special Award for Excellence in Services Exports highlights an outstanding firm.

Local companies can be nominated in more than one category and the deadline is 27 February.

Application forms can be found on CAIPA’s website.

Forms should be submitted to DCI Business Services Officer Thais Ducent at thais.ducent@gov.ky
