But few know the Caribbean as a business mine and all the business opportunities that are offered. The Caribbean has many talented people and lucrative business opportunities. There are many business possibilities in different areas of interest. Roën Trinidad is convinced that we (the Caribbean) should open doors to the world of investment so that the can experience and see what the Caribbean has to offer. And that’s what he is going to do through The Caredec platform.
