As the construction of the new pier in Falmouth, Trelawny, comes close to completion, the members of the Trelawny Art & Craft and Entertainment Association, who are set to occupy spaces in and around the pier, are busy undergoing extensive training.

During the training, which started on January 31 at the Falmouth Vocational Training Centre and ends today, more than 40 members will be trained under the 'Business Entrepreneurial Empowerment Programme (BEEP)'.

The BEEP is designed to empower micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) to formalise their business and to achieve minimum business standards and is a collaborative project implemented by the Institute of Law & Economics in partnership with the MSME Alliance, the Development Bank of Jamaica, the Scotiabank Chair in Entrepreneurship and Development, University of Technology, Jamaica, among other partners.
