Government said it’s going ahead with building a cruise berthing facility in George Town, but it’s still working to lessen the negative environmental impacts.
Deputy Premier and Tourism Minister Moses Kirkconnell said government has directed the consulting firm Baird, who worked on the environmental assessment, to come up with four scenarios that meet the country’s cruise and cargo needs while simultaneously reducing the environmental impact of the project.
He said that work is almost done.
“We’re in a position now where the steering committee will be looking at all of this information that is back, and making recommendations on the way forward,” said Mr. Kirkconnell.
Mr. Kirkconnell told Cayman 27 the Foreign and Commonwealth Office has been apprised on the country’s progress on the project.
