The business community in the Sister Islands will have a chance
to learn first-hand about the new Trade and Business Licensing Law,
its benefits, and its requirements from Department of Commerce and
Investment (DCI) staff at the 2015 Cayman Brac Business Expo.
Put on by Hurley's Media, the expo will be held from 9am to
4pm on Saturday, 12 December at the Aston Rutty Civic Centre.
DCI Director Ryan Rajkumarsingh said DCI's presence at the
expo represents the department's commitment to ensuring
business owners throughout the Cayman Islands have an opportunity
to learn more about the new law.
'In late October, we set up
information booths at the Brac supermarkets before staging a public
meeting at the civic centre and the feedback we received was
positive,' he said. 'We have always recognised the
importance of commerce in the Sister Islands, and that's why we
have a DCI office in the Brac.
'With the law expected to commence soon, it's important
for us to reach out to all residents so that they can be prepared
for the new law'.
Among other features, the law improves the governance structure
and processes of the Trade and Business Licensing Board, reduces
TBL approval times, improves DCI's enforcement powers, and
clarifies business licensing categories.
