SPS in a Changing World: Building Resilience in the Caribbean Webinar

Market access for Caribbean agri-food products is increasingly determined by compliance with international Sanitary and PhytoSanitary (SPS) measures. The recent COVID-19 pandemic has brought SPS matters into the mainstream, highlighting an even greater need to strengthen regional systems. To remain competitive, the Caribbean must become more agile in order to respond quickly and effectively to new SPS requirements and champion post-pandemic economic recovery. This webinar delves into the key issues affecting SPS matters in the Caribbean Region.
