SUBSIDIARY SPOTLIGHT


CARIB GLASSWORKS LIMITED 


 


Founded in 1948 Carib Glassworks Limited [CGL] is a subsidiary of the ANSA McAL Group of companies, and is included in the Manufacturing Sector. CGL’s mission and vision is to produce quality glassware in an efficient and productive operation that meets the expectations of its customers.


 


With this in mind CGL continues to invest in its plant, equipment and its people. CGL’s new container plant is a clear demonstration of this commitment. The new plant has resulted in CGL having the most modern equipment from furnace operation, through bottle forming, inspection and fully automated palletizing.


 


Recently, CGL embarked on a Recycling Campaign, ‘Cash for Glass’, with very encouraging results. The CGL campaign has been receiving rave reviews as a Corporate Entity desirous of doing its part in saving the environment. CGL’s Recycling Campaign has been the topic of discussion, commentary, and has underscored the Subsidiary’s movement as being ‘exemplary’ and in keeping with the Global standards of Corporate Social Responsibility.

 
 

 


CORPORATE BUSINESS FOCUS


Epa at a glance


 




Some time ago we started a conversation around the EPA and its impact on our local and regional business environment. We have since received many requests for a continuation of this feature of the Corporate Broadcast. For the benefit of those who would like to be more au courant with the EPA, let’s start from the top…


 


 


The EPA at a Glance…

The Economic Partnership Agreement or EPA is:


 



  • A reciprocal trade agreement between the Caribbean Group of States of the ACP and the European Community (EC) designed to replace the trade component of the Cotonou Agreement, which was based on no reciprocity.

 



  • A trade instrument with strong development components.

 



  • To help CARIFORUM to enjoy a more predictable market access to the EU for its traditional exports. In the process that would help to encourage investment in traditional exports. Expected to provide new business opportunities and scope to export a wider and more buoyant range of products and services thereby increasing employment, labour skills rates of economic growth and sustainable development. Intended to reduce the cost of trading by modernising and improving the region’s processes and procedures associated with importing and exporting. The negotiation of the Agreement was concluded on December 16, 2007.
