The premier and the president of Honduras advanced trade and tourism talks Friday in Grand Cayman.

Officials welcomed president Juan O. Hernandez and a small Honduran delegation to Cayman just two weeks after a Cayman contingent traveled to Roatan to initiate talks.

In a press conference, both leaders described discussions as very positive.

The two leaders talked about expanding imports of meat, seafood, and produce to our islands, as well as partnering on undersea cable connectivity to Miami.

The deal would also see the creation of a new direct flight for Cayman Airways to the Bay Island of Roatan, which would position Grand Cayman as a regional transit hub.

“We have some capacity, and we also have a hub that’s being set up here. So we look at moving people from Honduras to let them take advantage of connectivity on Cayman Airways to Kingston, Jamaica, to Miami, to New York,” said Deputy Premier Moses Kirkconnell.

Mr. Kirkconnell, who is also tourism minister, said he’s looking into how our tourism product could benefit from the increase in direct flights from European destinations to the Republic of Honduras.
