Turks and Caicos, July 7, 2017 – Providenciales – Yesterday, the Ports Authority of the Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI) launched the inaugural issue of its industry newsletter, The Navigator.
Ports play a fundamental role in the development of the Turks and Caicos Islands. For many years, their importance to our economy has not been fully realized, yet we have come a long way from the days of the salt industry and sustenance trade with our neighbors as our ports now facilitate international cargo imports and cruise ship operations.
In this inaugural edition, the Ports Authority seeks to raise greater awareness of the importance of ports to the sustainable development of the Turks and Caicos Islands and the maritime challenges we are currently faced with. In this issue, contributions have been made by the Hon. Premier, Chairman of the Ports Authority Board and the Director of Ports.
The Navigator will be published on a quarterly basis. Our next issue is scheduled to be published in September 2017.
