Governor Davis impressed with Little Bay developments, Kimbugwe concurs

Gov-press-conf_09-10-13-(5)His Excellency the governor Adrian Davis is full of praise for the structured way in which development is taking place in Montserrat, as he referenced the work going on at what has been described by the Montserrat Development Corporation (MDC) as the Marine Village, along with nearing completion of the A1 Road rehabilitation projects.

“I was very impressed,” he said at his September 10, press conference, about the Marine village at Little Bay.

The Governor he went down with DFID’s Kato Kimbugwe and viewed, “the amount of progress there has been since I went down there six weeks ago, is really quite astonishing,” he said.

He also spoke of his perception of what he thinks. “It’s a symbol of change in Montserrat and a symbol that I hope you reinforce and I’m also just so absolutely delighted at the way the road project has progressed and turn around, because,” he said, “that is a kind of symbolic project for Montserrat, and in the way it’s now being implemented is absolutely wonderful.”

Meanwhile Kimbugwe spoke against the background of identifying and developing economic drivers for the island’s development, also referencing the Little Bay Developments and the A1 Road rehabilitation projects as trump cards in the development process.

He also spoke about TDP3, the Tourism Project “that is under development at the moment.”

He said that these plans would impact developing various attractions at Jack Boy Hill and Garibaldi Hill; “they are certain points that have been identified as opportunities to set up viewing platforms…,”he said.

He added that the tourism project, “is going to look across the island not just the south or the north, but everywhere you can create a menu of attraction attractions.”

He also cited, “the ongoing development activities are all part of a bigger picture aimed at increasing investor confidence and driving economic activity.”

He mentioned the repairing of the roads, investments in geothermal, Little Bay: “…are all aimed at trying as much as possible to give the private sector that boost, or to give individuals that boost so that they have greater confidence in going out and investing and becoming entrepreneurs, and investing in Montserrat.”

Kimbugwe said that is critical, since, “that’s what’s going to drive economic activity not just the capital investments,” as he reminds, “capital investments give you a short term boost on your GDP over the period when they are being implemented, but the longer term impact is what happens thereafter, how you maximize the use of that particular investment, that’s what’s critical.
