Providenciales, 20 Jan 2016 – There will be a new home for the new Invest Turks and Caicos Agency according to its Chief Executive, John Rutherford.
On the launch at the Provo Golf Club on Monday night, Rutherford told media that there is a diverse mandate handed to the organization to create a more diverse economy.
“We will attract more foreign investment to the islands, not just in tourism and hospitality but we know the importance of diversifying the economy so we want to look at what other sectors we can attract to the islands. But we want to also help domestic investors as well, help them grow their business, expand their business. And then finally we have been given responsibility for the micro, small and medium enterprise program and that kicks off on the first of April.”
The goal is to be more assertive said Rutherford, agreeing that indeed the launch was a big night for Invest Turks and Caicos which is also tasked with bigger branding of the TCI.
The CE made it clear that while TC Invest did a lot of good things, Invest Turks and Caicos Agency will not be a bank and their goal is to raise economic activity.
