Grenada, known as the ‘Spice Island’ because of its countless locally grown spices, is a largely undiscovered and unspoilt island in the West Indies. Full of opportunities, this island also appeals to worldwide travellers thanks to its exotic scenery, golden beaches, tropical rain forest, enchanting waterfalls, seductive climate, and charm and friendliness of its natives. With its excellent restaurants, sporting opportunities and calendar full of remarkable festive events throughout the year are proving to be an attractive destination of rich and affluent investors.
After years of relaying on the production and export of spices for its main income, Grenada worked hard on diversifying its economy and ventured out into hospitality and tourism sector. Not yet overwhelmed by resorts and cruise ship crowds through tourism boom which cascaded the majority of the Caribbean Islands into the hot travel spot, Grenada offers superb investment opportunities for foreign nationals in this industry within which more than half of Grenada’s highly educated population is employed. Due to this developed sector and country’s modern infrastructure, Grenada also improved its prospects in manufacturing and construction. Most recently it is considering the potential impact of oil and natural gas to its economy. The very safe banking system, a home to many Canadian banks, offer a secure place to deposit funds with attractive interest rates.
With its transformation, a thriving tourism industry, new petrochemical program and a Government encouraging foreign investment to support sustainability of employment, Grenada is becoming the new most desirable place to live and work.
