The first Caribbean Multi-National Business Conference (CMBC) was organized by CARIB NEWS owners Karl and Faye Rodney, twenty-five years ago.

The idea grew out of an awareness that there needed to be a firm connection between the vast potential of resourceful and enterprising business persons in the larger diaspora of African-Americans, and the opportunities that abounded in the Caribbean.

That year, the inaugural CMBC was introduced at the Braco Resort in Trelawny, Jamaica. The conference was a meeting of African-American, Caribbean-American, US business persons, US Corporation leaders, thought leaders, and elected officials who gathered in Jamaica to explore the possibilities.

25 years later, CMBC is as much needed as when it started. As the world changes, so too is the demand for change on every level.
