Port will protect Caymanian jobs, claim businesses

Amid vocal and organised opposition to the cruise berthing project, a group of likeminded businessmen formed their own lobby group to spread a different message about the port.

The men behind ‘Cayman’s Port, Cayman’s Future’ say their group is about more than self-interest.

The businesses, which range from small ‘mom and pop’ operations to large duty-free shopping chains like Kirk Freeport, say they support the port principally because they believe it will protect Caymanian jobs.
