These sessions and activities will help us to meet our objectives of finding solutions to global challenges by refining the innovations and partnerships needed to resolve challenges ahead of the in-person Summit activities in October, ensuring that solid deliverables will be achieved. Some of the challenges that manufacturing will seek to address here are
- Food Security
- Climate Change
- Manufacturing for Healthy Lifestyles
There will be exploratory virtual sessions with regional and international partners that includes B2B matching. We have already started dialogue and other global partners will be engaged as we go forward; this will ensure activities in October are targeted and productive development of new products will be pursued. This includes the Ration Pack Initiative that features the BMA acting as a leader in innovation supporting our country’s disaster response programme through product specific development.
Our Pop-Up Exhibition – Manufacturing Safe Sustainable Living is one of the events within the calendar of the Pre-Summit activities of the Barbados Manufacturers’ Association Trade & Investment Summit (TIS) 2022. The Pop-Up Exhibition is centred around the subtheme of Manufacturing Safe Sustainable Living. The challenges Barbados faced in the last two years have emphasized the need to start our global outreach from a welcoming home base.
The event spearheaded by the BMA’s Construction Group will highlight the role that the manufacturing sector plays in achieving resilient, safe, healthy homes and sustainable living spaces.
