Significant growth in 2015
By the Caribbean Journal staff
When the government of Prime Minister Gaston Browne came to power in June 2014, there was one overriding goal: to make Antigua and Barbuda and economic power house.
So far in 2015, that’s been the case.
The country has posted the fastest growth in the Caribbean region in 2015, with a projected 5.4 percent increase in GDP, according to new data from the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean.
The growth comes in part due to a series of high-profile, multimillion-dollar tourism projected launched in Antigua and Barbuda in the last 14 months.
Antigua and Barbuda was followed by the Dominican Republic at 4.8 percent and St Kitts and Nevis at 4.6 percent.
Guyana was next at 4.5 percent growth.
