This symposium will showcase what Dominica has to offer in the health and wellness sector, and will provide guidance on the way forward in developing this market while in its infant stage. The Caribbean Spa and Wellness Association, in collaboration with Caribbean Export Development Agency (Carib Export), and with technical assistance from the DDA, expect local stakeholders and 40 persons from the private sector, CARIFORUM policy makers and international partners from around the Caribbean, the UK, Thailand and Germany to discuss a marketing strategy and way forward to brand the Caribbean as the world’s largest wellness and spa destination.  C-SWA has received US$800,000 in funding to become the leading support organization for Health & Wellness stakeholders. Research conducted by the Carib-Export indicates that the health and wellness sector is growing rapidly in the Caribbean.
