The Grenadian leader, accompanied by members of the Grenada Industrial Development Corporation (GIDC), met this morning with Clear Harbour CEO and Managing Partner, Lee Waters, Managing Partner - Tut Smith, General Manager, Jeffrey Malchow and the company’s Administrative Manager, Claudia Downes.
“We welcome your company’s contribution to our economy and to the employment of our people. We look forward to your further expansion, which brings with it the possibility of even greater employment opportunities. We will give Clear Harbour the necessary support to enable a successful operation in Grenada”, the Prime Minister said following a tour of the company’s facilities.
Prime Minister Thomas, who heads the CARICOM - ICT effort, noted that the region can benefit substantially from the expansion and utilization of Information and Communication Technology, as evidenced by the Clear Harbor operations at the Frequente Industrial Estate.
“It is one area in which Grenada and the Caribbean can compete with the rest of the world on a level playing field, especially because of our educated labour force and our proximity to the United States market,” the Prime Minister said.
The Prime Minister reaffirmed his government’s willingness to work with and support investors willing to invest in Grenada, noting that his administration has taken various measures designed to attract new investment to the island.
