Deputy Premier and Tourism Minister Moses Kirkconnell said he’s thrilled to see tangible progress at Owen Roberts International Airport.
He told Cayman 27 it’s progress on major infrastructure projects like these that give credibility to the PPM administration’s self-styled sobriquet: “a government that gets things done,” But more importantly, he said the work in progress shows outside investors that Cayman isn’t content to rest on its laurels.
“It’s a tremendous feeling to see that the airport is now underway, it’s also a tremendous tool to use for investors that are coming to Cayman. When they see that this is not a conversation anymore about the redevelopment of the airport, about ORIA, when they see that it’s actually taking place, they know that they can depend on a comfortable way to get their guests to the properties that they’re looking at building,” said Mr. Kirkconnell
This first phase of the $55 million redevelopment is said to be on time and on budget for completion in sometime in March. Government said a contract will soon be awarded for phase two.
