The Report was launched during a special session of the Youth Forum dedicated to “CRS and Inclusive Business”, which was introduced by the Assistant Secretary General of the Organization of American States, Ambassador Albert Ramdin, and gathered about 80 young entrepreneurs and leaders of youth organizations from Latin America & the Caribbean.

Issues discussed included how corporate social responsibility and inclusive business models are relevant for the youth and how important it is for the private sector to work together with governments and civil society. The session also benefited from the presence of the GIM case author from Trinidad & Tobago, Ms. Melanie Richards, who briefly talked about the two Caribbean GIM case studies (Denmor Garment in Guyana and Mt Plaisir Estate Hotel in Trinidad & Tobago), which are being used regularly in SME trainings in the Caribbean.
