Regional Policy Dialogue on Innovation

Date: 06 Nov 2013

Time: 8:30 AM

Location: Kingston, Jamaica

Objective of the Workshop

The objective of this meeting is to generate a space for an effective dialogue on the relevance of innovation for the services sector, and explore how innovation and competitiveness policies may influence this sector, and what may be done to improve the quality and effectiveness of these policies and programs.

We expect the meeting to allow participants to improve their knowledge of practices from different countries, foster the dialogue among them, and draw lessons on how to improve the design and implementation of innovation policies and programs in the services sector. The meeting will also allow identifying what topics should be discussed in future workshops within the regional policy dialogue initiative.


The target audience of this workshop will be the officials and experts in charge of the design and implementation of innovation and competitiveness policies in the Caribbean countries. One participant from each country of the region is expected.


The sessions will be developed with a presentation of each theme by an expert and a panel discussion involving relevant policy-makers, regional and international organizations, and private sector representatives.
