President of the Dominica Business Forum Severin McKenzie says preparations are well underway for the hosting of the National Economic Forum (NEF).

McKenzie says the Forum aims to bridge the gap between the Financial Institutions and the Private Sector, as access to finance for overall Private Sector growth still remains a challenge.

The Forum will be held at the Goodwill Parish Hall on Thursday February 14th.

McKenzie says various Government agencies will also make presentations at the Forum.
