Economically Empowered Women for Equitable and Resilient Societies (WEE) Project

 

The OAS-SEDI implements the “Economically Empowered Women for Equitable and Resilient Societies” project.

The objective of the project is to enhance the capacity of small-scale women entrepreneurs in participating OAS Member States: Six countries of the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States: Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Grenada, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines; and, in Central America, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.

Key Opportunities in the digital economy:

The expansion of connectivity, infrastructure, network effects, falling computing and sensor costs, open software architecture, and the deregulation of digital markets are accelerating the adoption and use of digital technologies and enabling the emergence of a whole new generation of investment and business models.

Declining information and communication technology (ICT) prices encourage investment and adoption of digital technologies in emerging economies, providing their firms with cutting- edge services at competitive prices. All of this enable firms to participate in global value chains and directly access customers in foreign markets in ways previously only feasible for large and established companies from advanced economies.
