PM to announce “major” resort project


Prime Minister Gaston Browne says he will soon give details of a major resort project to be constructed here.

He made the disclosure while doing a circumnavigation tour of the island with “very wealthy UAE investors.”

Browne revealed that the group is interested in buying a property here “and I am pretty confident we have a deal.”

“I am not at liberty to announce anything at this stage,” the prime minister told Pointe FM via telephone.

He said the investors would return to Antigua in another 30 days “and I believe at that point we should be able to announce a major resort project.”

Browne said met the investors during a recent trip to the UAE and invited them to Antigua.

The prime minister has also defended the push to get more hotels here saying, “unless we get up to about 10 thousand rooms we really not in the game.”

Since coming into office the Gaston Browne government has approved 15 hotel properties for the island.

He said the circumnavigation tour was also a personal reminder to him of Antigua and Barbuda’s beauty.

  1. What did Sir. Lester say to this inept Puppet Master too many ground faking, please finish one of the 15 projects.

    • My sentiments!!! It makes me wonder if this idea of announcing projects and having ground fakings is a deliberate strategy to make people feel that a lot is going on, then several years down the line you turn around and realize nothing tarl happening.

  2. How much longer will you guys continue to BS people??? Talk, talk, talk about major projects for the lsat several years and up to now we can’t see anything. Stop insulting us Sir.

  3. Another ground faking?
    The PM need to stop Travel all over the world to bring more investors here when he can’t get any of the 15 investors he already have to start their hotels.
    And they need to stop dig up all over Antigua with their shovels and actually build something.

  4. The other point i forgot to mention, is that he said he met the investor while on a recent trip to the UAE. Surely, it appears as if no due deligence or back ground check was done on this investor.
