An MSME like a biological organism exists and functions in an environment and within an ecosystem that contributes and influences its capacities and ability to compete and thrive. The business environment encompasses the policy, legislative, regulatory, and institutional frameworks that govern, cultivate, and supports individual enterprises. The business ecosystem consists of the network of entities (enterprises, organizations, agencies) — including suppliers, distributors, customers, competitors, government agencies, and so on — involved in the delivery of a specific product or service through both competition and cooperation. An enabling environment and a healthy ecosystem are therefore critical for the competitiveness and success of MSMEs.
Highlighting the importance of restructuring Caribbean economies, the Director of Economics at the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB), Ian Durant says increasing competitiveness has to be the top priority for inducing strong and inclusive growth and overcome the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
For over a year, the entire world has battled the COVID-19 pandemic. And the Members of the Organization of African, Caribbean, and Pacific States (OACPS) have not been spared. OACPS Members have more than 50 million registered Micro, Small, and Medium-sized Enterprises (MSMEs). The same represent around 90% of the entrepreneurial fabric and a share of employment that fluctuates between 50 and 70 percent across the six regions of the Organization. Solving challenges related to the impact of the crisis requires coordinated efforts from various private and public sector stakeholders at national, regional, and all OACPS levels.
The CDC has moved several Caribbean countries' Covid travel advisories to Level 1 classification, which signifies the lowest risk level for Covid.
Level 1 countries include those like Australia and New Zealand, both having reported fewer than 50 Covid-19 cases in the 28 days ending June 14. The CDC had earlier this month removed several countries from its highest risk rating.
