June 5  Miami-Dade County Commissioner, Jose "Pepe" Diaz is leading a business development trade mission to the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis as well as Antigua next month.

According to the South Florida Business Journal, the Mission under the aegis of the Jay Malina International Trade Consortium of Miami-Dade County will also visit Antigua and Barbuda.

The International Trade Consortium said the visit to the twin island Federation from July 18th to 20th is aimed at developing new relationships and increase the two-way trade between Miami-Dade County and the Caribbean nations.

St. Kitts and Nevis and Miami-Dade County last September signed a Sister Cities Agreement in Miami aimed at promoting cooperation in the areas of culture, tourism and trade.
The agreement signed by St. Kitts and Nevis Prime Minister Dr. the Hon. Denzil L. Douglas; Mayor of Miami-Dade County, Florida, the Hon. Alex Penelas and Commissioner of Miami-Dade County, the Hon. Jose “Pepe” Diaz, promotes and fosters a better understanding of the people of St. Kitts and Nevis and Miami-Dade and promotes the development of local economies through joint programmes to benefit residents.

The Sister Cities Agreement notes that Prime Minister Douglas “has worked to identify the relationship to deepen ties between the People of St. Kitts and Nevis and Miami-Dade” and Commissioner Diaz for working to “diligently develop and strengthen the ties that unite the peoples of St. Kitts and Nevis and Miami-Dade.”

From St. Kitts, the mission travels to Antigua and Barbuda from July 20th to 23rd.

The ITC also plans to send a business development mission to the Turks & Caicos Islands this month.
