As Cayman prepares to safely and gradually reopen its economy with much attention on reviving the tourism sector, there’s no question that we are entering a period of ‘a new normal’.
There is wide agreement that our economy has so far fared well comparatively.
While we plan for the reopening, there is no question that our specialist financial service sector has kept the government’s finances - and the economy afloat, along with the real estate industry and our retail businesses.
There’s a common thread running through all of that; finance.
Whatever happens in the global financial markets affects us here in Cayman especially as we are global innovators in the industry.
It’s something we can’t afford to take for granted.
As we venture into this global ‘new normal’ - post-pandemic and most likely having to live with Covid - how we do business is going to be even more central to our economic growth.
As a major global player in the financial sector and as local innovators not afraid to look outwards, Cayman has a lot to be proud of.
Here at Caymanian Times, with our in-house expertise of over four decades in banking/finance and business, we will be devoting even more attention to this both in our main printed editions as well as our online offering.
Our new Business and Finance section will focus on highlighting and promoting developments in our business sector, alongside tracking global issues of interest to Cayman, and offering financial advice from expert contributors.
The times are indeed ‘a-changin’ as Bob Dylan sang.
Here at Caymanian Times, we are committed to reflecting and reporting on these changing times.
It's time for business.
