From The Progressives 2017 Manifesto

A STRONGER CAYMAN BRAC & LITTLE CAYMAN

Our vision for Cayman Brac & Little Cayman includes a development plan that encourages economic growth based on the preservation of the environment, culture, and traditions of the Sister Islands. Development must be sufficient to allow Brackers to be able to make a good living on Cayman Brac and to also encourage inward migration that will help grow the economy of the sister islands.

We will:
• Complete the provision of piped water throughout Cayman Brac.
• Complete the sports complex and multi-purpose centre on the Bluff
• Encourage the building of a small boutique hotel on Cayman Brac.
• Support the development of small local B&B properties that can be rented via services such as airbnb.com.
• Support and encourage renewable energy for Little Cayman and Cayman Brac.
• Expand the courses offered at the UCCI Brac Campus to include online streaming of Bachelor’s degree courses from .
• Support local entrepreneurs to start up new businesses in Cayman Brac & Little Cayman, including adventure (rock climbing, spelunking) and ecotourism businesses with the directly marketing Cayman Brac to this tourism segment.

A STRONG & VIBRANT AGRICULTURE SECTOR

Over this term the Agriculture sector has grown in leaps and bounds with more commercial farming and ‘back yard farms’ bringing fresh local produce to supermarkets, restaurants, and to consumers at the various farmers markets. Farm to table has become a true reality in our Islands, with more varieties of herbs, vegetables, and other foodstuff available. This success not only provides healthier alternatives to imported foods but also builds our capacity for food security.

In a new Progressive term we will continue to support and encourage farming of all types. With the assistance of CARDI we will promote the use of modern farming techniques to improve quality as well as yields.

STRONGER CULTURAL APPRECIATION

A future will advance the recommendations in the policy to help ensure enjoyment of, and pride in our cultural heritage as a national asset. We will promote community based cultural tourism and festivals. In addition, Caymanian culture and heritage will be promoted in schools as well as included in cultural orientation courses that are designed to enable guest workers to better understand and appreciate Cayman and Caymanians. We will also support our artists and crafts persons to encourage promotion of their work at local galleries or other public spaces.

RESPECTING RELIGION
Cayman has a rich Christian heritage, which has moulded and served our people for many generations. We are now a country made up of people from over 130 countries. The Progressives remain committed to freedom of belief and worship as a basic human right.
