Globally, the outsourcing industry is growing exponentially and the Caribbean is well positioned to take advantage of this growth. Already, several territories in the region are making it one of the mainstays of their economies. The industry can have a significant economic and social impact on the region helping us to achieve our developmental goals.
This first ever Outsource to the Caribbean Conference is the Caribbean’s indication to the world that we are serious about improving the conditions in our region to attract, retain and grow outsourcing businesses. It is an indication that we understand our value proposition as a nearshore destination with a highly educated, multi-lingual, customer focused and cost-effective labour pool and that most importantly we have the government commitment to support the development of the sector. Most of our investment promotion agencies or development entities have the growth of the sector and the generation of decent jobs as a priority.
The Turks and Caicos Islands is proud to support this ground-breaking initiative. We do not have the outsourcing sector as one of the pillars of our economy in the Turks and Caicos Islands right now but it is our intention to move up the value chain in this industry focusing on the linkages between the outsourcing sector and our already thriving financial services sector.
We congratulate the leadership of Caribbean Export, CAIPA and the sponsors who have come on board and look forward to a fruitful and rewarding event that sets the stage for an even grander forum next year.
