IDB organizes seminar on Opportunities for the Majority in the Caribbean

The Inter-American Development Bank is organizing a seminar in Montego Bay, Jamaica, May 17-18, to identify new development models to serve the majority in the Caribbean through public, private and civil society partnerships.

The event will bring together corporate, non-profit, government and academic leaders to explore unconventional partnerships that can provide concrete solutions to problems faced by the region’s low-income majority. Participants will share their strategies and success stories in targeting low-income markets, which represent more than 8 million people in the Caribbean.

Speakers at the event will include Professor Stuart L. Hart, co-author of the path-breaking article “The Fortune at the Bottom of the Pyramid,” and David Rabkin, Co-Founder, OTF Group, Vice President, American Express. Key thematic areas to be discussed will include infrastructure and housing, small and medium-sized enterprise development, microfinance, information and communications technology and financial democracy.

The event will be held at the Half Moon Conference Center. Admission will be free, but registration is required.
