The pre-Christmas spirit has hit the islands and tourists continue to hit the aquamarine-colored, water-lined beaches in souring numbers to beat the wintery climates they left behind.
While tourists may be arriving in droves with the intent to slow down, relax, and unwind, the opposite can be said about the companies we were fortunate to profile for this month’s issue of Business View Caribbean.
Although catering to tourists continues to be a top economic driver throughout the Caribbean, other sectors are booming. Second, only to the region’s tourism sector is the fast-moving island-based construction sector.
Organizations within this field are seizing on the area’s thriving housing sector opportunities. Those with the right mix of business savvy and competitive edge are taking profit with a host of projects in the pipeline to prove it while helping to address the affordability of owning a home in the region.
Our editorial team sat down for two more in-depth interviews with several of the island’s most dynamic and engaging companies, as well as a government-associated entity that is helping to make a difference in the region.
It is as clear as the crystal waters surrounding the islands that continued growth is on the Caribbean horizon, as are the progressive initiatives of those we were fortunate to chat with.
The scent of Caraibes, BVI Airports Authority, and Clarendon Parish set the bar high in their respective business agendas and demonstrate the drive towards excellence we have seen time and time again across the region.
With sustainability in mind, best business practices up front, and a resilient economy at their fingertips, the organizations we were pleased to profile highlight the undeniable draw of the Caribbean islands.
As with every issue, my hope as Editor in Chief is that our valued readers continue to learn something as all of you also enjoy your families over the holidays.
