Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce & St. Kitts & Nevis UN Ambassador: Building Bridges Through Commerce
The mission of the Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce of providing networking and relationship building opportunities for entrepreneurs and professionals at all levels of the business, governmental and diplomatic worlds is gaining wide appeal in the Caribbean Community.
On Thursday March 28th, St. Kitts and Nevis UN ambassador Excellency Sam. T. Candor met with the Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce President, Duvi Honig at its 44-Wall Street office to discuss tourism options and opportunities, infrastructure, the economy, and how the Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce can help the tiny Caribbean island nation of less than 40,000 to gain traction in the global economy.
The St. Kitts & Nevis UN ambassador told OJC president Honig that “tourism is the largest source of foreign exchange in his country and that his country is still looking at challenges of industrial diversification as well.”
In mentioning the Ross University school of veterinary medicine that presently operates in his country, and how this institution is boosting the tourism industry the ambassador also mentioned the need to build a bridge to connect the two-island state that is presently separated by a channel some 3 km in width.
President Honig further expressed his appreciation in the way the Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce is empowering and supporting the diverse business communities in the Caribbean, while Chairman Morty Davis listed the ways in which the Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce can involve the twin island state of St. Kitts Nevis to achieve their economic goals.
The Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce played a vital role the unanimous passage of the ‘Economic Development Day Bill’ in the state of New Jersey, for increased cooperation among the business community and public officials in order to improve the state’s economic development, and also alliances with j-biz expo, conference hosting at the Knesset, and government officials at the local state and federal levels.
