Beneficiaries of Promotion of Regional Opportunities for Produce through Enterprises and Linkages (PROPEL) showcased their products at an exhibition yesterday, at the DEXIA Packing House in Goodwill on Thursday 6 September, 2018.

OECS/Barbados Coordinator and Agribusiness & Marketing Consultant Dr. Nadia Pacquette – Anselm told Vibes News that a number of persons have benefited from the PROPPEL Project.

“Various partners benefited from the PROPEL Project such as Ministry of Agriculture, Dexia, Dominica Youth Business Trust (DYBT), North East Womens Group and a number of other entrepreneurs on the island,” Mrs. Anselm said.

She added that during the course of the past few days the island was “graced with the Canadian delegation and we thought it would be a good idea to have an exhibition for beneficiaries of the PROPEL Project to have a level of interaction”.

The PROPEL Project is funded by the government of Canada and implemented by a Canadian based NGO World University Service of Canada (WUSC).
