Premier, Dr. D. Orlando Smith announced at a press conference on 26 June that investors attending the US tourism conferences are interested in developing Prospect Reef Resort, and the Beef Island development.
Hon. Smith told members of the media that he recently attended tourism investment promotion conferences in New York, and Miami in an attempt to engage in networking opportunities with leading institutions in the tourism industry.
At the conferences he met with hoteliers, financiers and investors who may be interested in development opportunities in the BVI. He said that his delegation also did a presentation showcasing the BVI and its potential investment opportunities and announced that there was great interest, particularly in the Beef Island development and in Prospect Reef Resort.
Since his return, Hon. Smith stated that his team has been following up with several of those attending, and will be receiving visits soon to further explore these projects.
