As we stated in our editorial comment this past Wednesday, January 12th: “This new year 2022 brings opportunities as well as challenges as Cayman looks to the future.”
We also noted that “adapting to change in this ‘new normal’ is the underlying principle that will see us continuing to succeed.”
Against that background, it was initially decided to shift our output to a larger weekly paper on Fridays.
That decision to consolidate our Wednesday and Friday editions into one weekly paper - at least for the time being - came after much consideration over the past weeks especially about the business and economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic here in Cayman.
We, along with other businesses, government, and the wider society are faced with the need to be nimble and responsive in this constantly shifting environment as we adjust to the ‘new normal’ and ‘these changing times’.
As things have turned out, we are pleased to announce today that Caymanian Times will continue as a twice-weekly newspaper...and we hope to eventually return to a daily paper.
That we are able to do this is testament to our Cayman resiliency and entrepreneurial drive.
We wish to thank our readers and advertisers for the continuing support and confidence in our commitment of being a quality paper reflecting the best of Cayman, and providing that important ‘world view’ that is central to Cayman’s global outlook.
Alongside our recently-launched weekly flagship discussion programme, The Panel, in which we examine current issues impacting Cayman, we’ll continue our endeavour of setting the tone for respectful discourse no matter how challenging the issue.
And in the spirit of corporate responsibility, Caymanian Times is committed to continuing to provide a space to highlight charitable and worthwhile community causes.
We are also pleased to announce a new regular feature titled ‘Escape to Cayman Brac’, a special section focusing on the Sister Island.
As with other businesses, Caymanian Times is also constantly adjusting and adapting to the new social and economic realities caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are all in this together.
Thanks for your continued support.
