“Jamaica has a strong history of producing world class quality products and JAUSACC is delighted to partner with JAMPRO and the U.S. Department of Commerce to showcase Brand Jamaica,” stated Marie Gill, President of JAUSACC. “Registration is going very well, with enquiries and interests from major corporations, government agencies, small businesses, and buyers interested in trading with Jamaica.  We anticipate a very successful conference.”

The Expo will provide a wealth of business resources for financing, contract opportunities with government and corporations; franchising; exporting, and identification of trade and investment opportunities with Jamaica. Other countries to be showcased as potential trading partners are Panama, Mexico, Brazil and Cuba.
Interested corporations, small businesses and individuals looking for products and services of a high standard, looking to engage in international trade, joint ventures, or to meet one-on-one with expo exhibitors to discuss potential partnerships, and negotiate for business opportunities that best suit their needs, can achieve all of this in one location, at the Jamaican Business Expo…this is an opportunity that should not be missed.
