    Minister of Industry, International Business, Commerce and Small Business Development, Donville Inniss, has called on regional standards bodies to make greater use of the skills offered by the private sector.

    He made this suggestion while delivering the feature address at the opening ceremony of the 32nd Meeting of the Council of the CARICOM Regional Organisation for Standards and Quality (CROSQ) at the Accra Beach Hotel and Spa in Rockley, Christ Church.

    “You must get the private sector on board, they’re the ones who benefit the most from your work and I’m very concerned the private sector in the region is not being asked to pull their weight when it comes to giving financial and other support to the work of CROSQ and various standards bodies,” the Minister stressed.

    Mr. Inniss told his audience that there was a need to be stricter with regard to the laws set in place to maintain high standards.
