It is estimated that micro and small businesses generate 80% of the jobs in the world.
Doug Mayorga, president and founder of the Minority Chamber of Commerce and Chairman of the executive committee of the World Summit of Leaders of the Micro Enterprise said: “The leaders participating in different fields or industries of the future within the micro business, will develop and implement solutions and perspectives at this conference. We have selected the Dominican Republic as the host because it is a key player in the dynamic Caribbean. This country has historical, cultural and political ties with other countries in the region, but additionally, it is committed to progress, growth and development of the population. The Dominican Republic is the door to both the challenges and opportunities of the region”.
The third training block is ‘Inspiring the Future’.
