With the goal of bringing you the latest in cutting-edge business savvy news in addition to a front-row seat into the plans that dynamic organizations across the Caribbean are implementing, we continue to keep our eye on key business developments.
The month of March marks St Patrick’s Day for many around the world, and fittingly the grass is always greener and the sun shines brightly for many businesses throughout the islands. Tourist numbers are up, and life has gotten back to normal with the bulk of the pandemic worries washed away along its beautiful beach-lined shores.
Although business prospects remain impressive, supply chain issues still linger somewhat, impacting companies in different ways. Other pandemic-induced economic spin-offs continue to affect companies as well including skilled employee shortages. It is clear, however, that these ongoing challenges pale in comparison to the robust prospects the companies we were fortunate to profile anticipate for this year and beyond.
Growth and continued best practices have propelled companies within the booming construction and housing sector and we sat down with some of the leading ones in the region for this month’s issue.
For Issa Construction Ltd and Olympic Construction, building the best of the best in new homes as well as taking the lead on top-tiered housing developments is in their DNA. With projects lined up for the foreseeable future and a host of projects under their tool belt, both companies prove that the Caribbean continues to draw many to the area to enjoy the lifestyle and beautiful surroundings.
With sustainability in mind, we were also fortunate to interview Jamaica Energy Partners. As the trek continues towards the best use of the burgeoning array of renewable energy sources, Jamaica Energy Partners offers expert solutions while keeping environmental concerns front and center in its business model.
