About the Charleston-Caribbean Leadership Summit
The Charleston-Caribbean Leadership Summit is a milestone event in the strengthening of South Carolina’s historic connections with the Caribbean nations. Since the founding of Charles Towne in 1670, our economy and culture were influenced by the area as much as the merchant ships were influenced by the prevailing trade winds that powered the journeys between our ports and theirs. We are revitalizing those connections with a focus on mutually beneficial opportunities for private sector investments. By bringing together leaders in four main sectors, the conference will facilitate renewed trade routes in medical and public health, financial services, logistics and transportation, and internet and telecommunications between South Carolina and the Caribbean.
