BCCI seminar on disaster risk reduction

BCCI seminar on disaster risk reduction
25 Apr

The local business community will be focusing attention on disaster risk reduction, when the Barbados Chamber of Commerce and Industry hosts a two-day seminar on the important issue from Wednesday.

The Chamber is hosting the seminar in association with Lynch Insurance Brokers and private sector organisations and emergency management agencies will be among those in attendance for the event at the Sandals Barbados Resort.

The seminar, will aim to answer questions on what happens when countries stop functioning, ports of entry are shut down, institutions are closed, supply chains are cut off, businesses cannot reopen, and communications are severed.

The Chamber says it is especially timely ahead of this year's hurricane season, and the severe impact of last year's hurricane season on the region.
