Meet the Facilitator: Kenika Espinosa

For close to two years, Kenika Espinosa has been a Research Officer in the Monitoring, Research and Evaluation Unit, of exporTT. In this role, Kenika has assisted dozens of exporters and potential exporters, in attaining market intelligence which has guided their business decisions.

Recently, Kenika led a Virtual Market Survey to Atlanta, for which she, along with a consulting firm, met with distributors and agencies from Atlanta, New York and Florida, to gather key information including: seller requirements, taxes, pricing trends, barriers to trade and logistics.

Currently, she is leading two Virtual Market Surveys (to the Dominican Republic and Curacao) and lending guidance for three more, with the aim of supporting Trinidad & Tobago exporters in expanding to new markets. Through the Identifying and Assessing Export Markets Programme, Kenika will demonstrate the use of online tools and databases, that will allow for more informed decision-making by local exporters and therefore expand their chances for success in new markets.
