Early this month, Invest SVG held a mini-expo and trade fair at the Hyatt Regency hotel, Wrightson Road, Port-of-Spain, highlighting Vincentian products and services. Representatives in the fields of agriculture, agro-processing, tourism, real estate, fashion, craft and more came out to present their wares, and members of the public in T&T were invited to attend.

Those who came were treated to samples of culinary delights like preserves, specialty meats, punches and rums, as well as displays of beautifully crafted bags, jewelry and household items, among other interesting presentations. Hoteliers and real estate agents were also on hand to pitch their tropical get-aways, as were government representatives from the St Vincent and the Grenadines.Patrons enjoyed complimentary drinks and hors d’oeuvres as they chatted with their hosts and soaked up the Vincentian warmth.
