Opportunities

The islands are home to vibrant communities and local businesses and offer a number of diverse development prospects. These are islands with tremendous opportunity.

Professional and semi-professional people have chosen to mix lifestyle with business by operating small enterprises such as boutiques, food and beverage outlets, accommodation, creative arts and tourism related services such as fishing, boating and diving.

Whilst a unique setting, the islands are quietly undergoing a regeneration process, as they look to renew, refresh and secure their futures to 2050 and beyond.

Opportunities exist for entrepreneurs and investors to become involved with planned revitalisation projects and tourism development.

There are financial benefits to be enjoyed as the islands have no goods and services tax applied and are duty free.
