Membership of CAIPA provides many benefits for IPAs such as customised training for its membership. In this section you’ll get a clearer understanding of the breadth of our services and how you can leverage them.
CAIPA is the cornerstone of a network of all Invest-ment Promotion Agencies (IPAs) in the Caribbean and economic development entities. The membership is growing and provides an opportunity to exchanging experiences, identifying best practice in investment promotion and investment services.
CAIPA provides a forum for its members to cooperate with other CARIFORUM IPAs on a regional basis, as well as to create opportunities for investment promo-tion. In addition through a number of international affiliates provides information on new tools and services.
IPAs may stand to benefit from capacity building initiatives and training opportunities. CAIPA provides its members with donors and providers of technical assistance.
CAIPA and the Business Community
