Cayman's year round temperate climate, relaxing environment, excellent connectivity with major international gateways and ability to attract high calibre medical practitioners make it a lucrative location for the development of healthcare facilities. These medical retreats can cater to middle income or more high end patients seeking proficient treatment not as readily available at home. The focus is on finding strategic partnerships for public and private sector investment opportunities. Special incentives are negotiated on a case buy case basis.
Earmarked investor: Shetty hospital, a 2000 room facility scheduled to break ground in 2015.
Film & Digital Media Production
The Cayman Island Film Commission launched in January 2009 to provide a one-stop shop for local and offshore producers, financiers, studio and production teams interested in filming movies, television series, commercials, music videos, documentaries and any other media projects. With three unique islands, inside and outside locations that span the gamut of traditional to modern, the country is well equipped to be the backdrop for many "reel" storylines. As this is still a budding industry, opportunities are ripe for investors interested in studio and/or sound stage construction, a skills training school rental services and film production equipment. All enquiries regarding the CIFC and related processing for film productions should be addressed to:
Film credits: THE FIRM (Tom Cruise and Gene Hackman) and HAVEN (Orlando Bloom) -- plus numerous documentaries, television specials, photo shoots and music videos.
