InterCaribbean integral in Jamaica Trade Mission to TCI

Published

on

Providenciales, 20 Jan 2015 – From a welcome reception at Kalooki’s in Blue Hills last night to this morning preparing for an all-day Trade show; the inaugural visit of a group of Jamaican-based companies and manufacturers, which arrived in the TCI yesterday is progressing well and the Trade Mission delegation is excited about a chance to dialogue with local stakeholders. During the InterCaribbean Airways hosted cocktail we spoke to Trevor Sadler, General Manager of InterCaribbean who shared this connection is a part of the company’s vision to link the northern Caribbean for pleasure and business.

Trevor Sadler, GM, InterCaribbean Airways: “In order for trade to develop across the Caribbean, there has to be air service links to make these things happen for business to be able to do business with their neighboring country. In some cases I can get to the neighboring country if there was a flight but I didn’t have a Visa to go via the United States; so beginning to create air service links that allowed the countries to connect with one another without having to go through the United States was an enabler for many to begin to do business. In the case of the Jamaica’s Exporters Association, we worked with them to help identify what products or the possibilities, how we can then help them come to the market and so the dialogue with the Chamber began in order to establish opening those doors and today this culminated in this first trade mission between Jamaica and the Turks and Caicos Islands.”

A welcome to the TCI by the Chamber of Commerce President, E Jay Saunders and the country’s Finance and Investment Minister, Washington Missick came as guests savored the seafood cuisine and fine hospitality at Kalooki’s. Tonight a farewell gathering is set for Beaches Resort Villages and Spa.

#USVI, December 1, 2022 – Recent reports of people taking large amounts of sand from beaches illegally have been on the increase in the US Virgin Islands.  The Department of Planning and Natural Resources (DPNR) is urging citizens to refrain from doing this.

The DPNR announced that those found guilty could be charged a fine of $10,000 daily.

While they are unaware of what the illegally mined sand is being used for, the DPNR said it cannot be used for construction.

“In seawater, chloride is present, causing corrosion of steel and iron, which ultimately leads to reducing carrying capacity, so that the structure built using this may not be sustainable,” the DPNR said.

December 1, 2022 – Cyber Monday isn’t just for electronics!  Potential vacationers broke a Carnival Cruises Cyber Monday record for bookings, purchasing 50 per cent  more tickets than 2019’s pre-pandemic shopping day.

The cruise line announced the record bookings on Tuesday, November 29th.

The company cited a successful launch campaign of the new Carnival Celebration which visited Grand Turk recently and the three additional ships joining the fleet over the next 18 months, as major ticket pushers.

“The Cyber Monday sale activity showed consumer demand across the fleet, and we were particularly pleased with the booking activity for Carnival Venezia’s new year-round service from New York, and our new extended six-month program for Carnival Magic out of Norfolk,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.

“Our very successful naming ceremony for Carnival Celebration on November 20 and all the media coverage it generated clearly kept Carnival top of mind as vacationers got started on their holiday shopping yesterday.”

They say the pent-up demand for cruising has manifested in multiple ways in 2022, as Carnival was the first major cruise line to have its entire fleet back in operation and it now has more rooms than it was sailing in 2019.
