As we welcome 2022, emerging from the past year we are mindful that the health and economic challenges faced in the past year will still be ‘clear and present’ challenges for Cayman.
But despite the downside, events in life - such as the persistent pandemic - can be seen as existing for a purpose and providing us with opportunities for individual and community self-examination.
Inasmuch as we’d like to ‘accentuate the positive’, reality dictates that we take a close hard look, admit to our collective shortcomings as a society and commit to making the changes that will make Cayman better for all of us.
We have much to be thankful for in spite of the disruptions to our way of life caused by COVID-19.
In fact, it might just have served to highlight where things might not have been going right and has provided us with the chance to put them right.
To put that in nautical terms that Cayman is quite culturally and historically familiar with - make a course correction…or adjustments as needed.
That also holds true for us at Caymanian Times.
As we look forward to navigating our way through 2022 with renewed vigour and gratitude to God, our supporters and team, The Caymanian Times will also be launching our new vision and outlook.
This will principally be reflected in our main product - our twice-weekly newspaper, along with our newly launched discussion programme - The Panel, along with our special media and other online offerings.
In all of this, we will remain true to our mission statement which has guided our editorial policy since our inception and is evident in our growth since then.
“The ability to influence the future is in our hands. Our children are the conduits through which this influence flows. The importance of factual balanced reporting is an important stage in our country’s development. We are committed to creating and passing on positive information to our readers who have come to enjoy our approach to news reporting. Fair and unbiased reporting is the cornerstone of Caymanian Times and will be protected throughout our existence.”
During 2022 we’ll be placing an even sharper focus on current affairs topics that relate to our economic recovery, community cohesion, safeguarding the environment, opportunities for Caymanians from education to business, and ‘living with COVID’.
All this will be from a perspective of encouraging our society as we together traverse 2022 with a new vision for Cayman.
