The theme of the conference is “Building Sustainable Communities”. This ties in with the recent decision of the Cayman Islands Government to set infrastructure projects as its priority. Building Sustainable Communities also reflects the Chamber of Commerce’s “Future of Cayman” initiative as 2 of the drivers are enhancing the quality of life and building smarter infrastructure.
This plenary session will focus on best practices to ensure that all projects, including the revitalization of George Town, will be planned and implemented effectively to enhance community development and quality of life on the island.
