Department of Commerce and Investment to launch new business talk show: The Business Buzz
October 19, 2011 - The Department of Commerce and Investment (DCI) today announced plans to launch a new business talk show on November 8th, 2011. Developed to be a conduit for informed, in-depth business commentary on matters related to economic growth and development in the Cayman Islands, The Business Buzz will air on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. on Radio Cayman.† Attorney-At-Law and businessman, Richard Barton, has been selected as the programmeís host.
DCIís Director, Jonathan Piercy, leads the charge of this new initiative and is confident that the show will be instrumental in helping the agency carry out its mission.† In his view, while the country is facing very challenging times, "the Cayman Islands still has that unyielding spirit to succeed and the willingness to make things happen.† Significant strides have been made to identify new sector opportunities and more is being done to develop a long-term economic plan that will benefit the jurisdiction in the years to come." He further adds that, "The Business Buzz is the medium that the DCI will use to highlight how far we have come to support small business, attract inward investment and what it will take to move the Cayman Islands forward over the longer term."
The show is packaged to be informative and fact based.† It will feature guests from the public and private sector who will provide updates on the business environment and share expert insights and perspectives on new projects. Members of the public will also have the opportunity to call in and join the discussions as often as they wish.
Host, Richard Barton, is enthused to be on board.† He says, "Cayman boasts a wealth of innovative minds and I have long recognised that knowledge in the fundamentals of business is the catalyst that transforms such innovation into success. The Business Buzz offers a platform where entrepreneurs can benefit from the dissemination of information that is central to the principles of business. I am truly honoured to partner with the DCI in its quest to promote and facilitate long-term foreign and local investment in the Cayman Islands."
The Business Buzz will be the dawn of a new day in talk radio. Itís poised to be a positive, upbeat vehicle for real talk, real issues and the presentation of real solutions.
