Dr. Keith Nurse, Executive Director of the UWI Consulting, participated in ITC’s Friday Noon series at the Centre’s  headquarters on  February 14, 2014. As part of his presentation titled,  ‘Enhancing trade-related technical assistance to the Caribbean’,  he discussed priority sectors in the Caribbean that have strong export potential.
