A company that is engaged in investments in media, education, hospitality, and real estate presented a proposal to the Cabinet for the construction of a medical school at Willoughby Bay.
The company proposed to construct a campus town in the area, inclusive of a hotel, marina, and an 18-hole championship golf course.
In addition, the company is ready to begin investing immediately, and has agreed to place US$5 million in escrow to start the project.
Students from India, China, Africa, and Europe will be the focus, and the university will forge linkages and partnerships with existing institutions in Antigua and Barbuda.

WE NEED INVESTMENTS IN SELF SUFFIENCY .
1 FEED OURSELVES
2 MAIN ENERGY SOURCE FROM SUN, SEA, AND WIND.
3 INVEST IN THE HUMAN RESOURCE TO BECOME SCIENTISTS TO SUSTAIN US.
4 STOP SELLING THE LAND STOP
What really does it mean to feed ourselves? This term always baffles me especially when the challenges of a crisis situation crops us…no pun intended.
There are too many of these money-grabbing “schools” already. How many medical universities do we have anyway? One or two or more???? And how many worthy Antiguans are studying there on scholarship? Are there any?
I actually believe that education tourism is a great idea. Who wouldn’t want to study in paradise? Longer-stay visitors have many benefits vs. short-stay visitors. Students come to stay awhile, spending locally, assisting the local economy then they leave after a couple of years to be replaced by more students. The key is to ensure that they actually spend locally vs just importing everything they need or just staying confined at the foreign institution. Aspiring local entrepreneurs can start businesses catering to student housing, clothing, food, and wholesome entertainment needs. Some towns in North America thrive by being “University towns”. And, yes, local Antiguans do receive scholarships and attend these institutions.
If we upgraded our own local institutions as well, you might be surprised that students from nearby islanids might also be interested in some of our programmes.

Labour government are jokers. What we need more medical schools for. They wouldn’t hire Antiguan professors even if we had them and they are not providing any jobs for Antiguans except lawn care and cleaning up the mess halls. Antigua needs investments with professional jobs. Stop giving our lands to these flyby nighters. They will soon sell all the beach front lands. A lot of politicians and their family members bought up government lands up there for pennies a square foot so I guess they have to find a buyer if possible before the elections, and the new government take back the lands. A who send them, Asot? What is $5million, wasn’t there suppose to be another investor putting $50 million in escrow. You labour government are are a bunch of jokers.

A college town or university town is a community (often a separate town or city, but in some cases a town/city neighborhood or a district) that is dominated by its university population.
In the case of this investment are they going to construct the second city at Willoughby Bay that the government declared was coming, or are they going to build the University and wait for the town second city to be built around the University. I just wish for these investors to be clear and stop throwing around empty, meaningless words.
