Cayman Enterprise City’s Economic Impact Over a Decade Has Reached USD 662 Million!
Hello
CEC is proud to release its annual Economic Impact Report for 2021. This independent assessment authored by leading Caribbean economist Marla Dukharan outlines the significant contributions the CEC development project and the businesses set up within it have made to the Cayman Islands economy since its inception 10 years ago, as well as projects the future benefits of the project for Caymanians, local industry, government, academia, and non-profit organisations.

Key highlights include:CEC has improved the competitiveness of the Cayman Islands, which is now home to the largest innovation ecosystem in the region.The proportion of Caymanians working at CEC SEZ companies is now up to 1 in 6. We anticipate this number growing significantly as a result of the Enterprise Cayman NPO’s expanding contributions to the workforce development sector.The Enterprise Cayman initiative continues to actively contribute to the preparation of the local workforce for the industries of the future, promoting lifelong learning and enabling greater economic mobility.Through transparent reporting, community building, and sustainable development initiatives, we aim to demonstrate the capacity of the CEC development project to innovate and diversify Cayman’s economic base, create resilience, offer immense value, and continue to distinguish our jurisdiction as a world-class hub for innovation.
