The Chamber of Commerce has recognised that the current state of the world’s economy has impacted the Cayman Islands in two significant ways: Our own economy is suffering, and our people are divided in their opinions on what should be done about it. The sooner we unite our industry associations, businesses, and public sector and government leaders; the more resilient our country will be to the economic challenges that still lay before us. We need to bring our community together to ensure the successful evolvement of policies, procedures and practices as we look to keep pace with the global economic transformation happening around us.
The Future of Cayman Forum is an economic development initiative that answers this need and starts the process of adjustments and change that must be confronted and implemented holistically.
The Cayman Islands Premier, Ministers, Ministries and authorities have fully endorsed the Future of Cayman Forum and have committed to work hand-in-hand with the private sector to develop immediate objectives, enablers and actions in support of these five Drivers.
Chambers around the world have embarked on similar exercises to unite the thinking and to pool the resources and expertise in the public and private sectors. The Future of Cayman Forum facilitates the exchange of ideas and focuses attention on the key areas essential for a successful future. The success of the initiative will be determined by the level of involvement and motivation of the stakeholders and a willingness to consider innovative thinking and strategies that give Cayman a competitive advantage in a global economy.
