UK invests in Grenada yachting

ADVERTISEMENT

Grenada has been awarded a US$375,000 grant to expand and develop the country’s marine and yachting sector, specifically with a 15-minute video about the island.

In addition, Grenada is investing in the training and certification of its yacht maintenance and technical staff, a security protocol for its marinas and shipyards, and streamlining the clearance requirements for yachts travelling between Grenada and St. Vincent, the government said in a statement.

The marketing image will be Grenada Grenadines Yachting.

The grant comes from CARTFund, a trust fund financed by the UK government and administered by the Caribbean Development Bank to assist CARIFORUM member countries in boosting growth and reducing poverty through trade and regional integration.
