Upcoming US $300 million worth project to transform tourism sector in Caribbean

A new $300 million project is set to be in the Caribbean that will transform the tourism sector in the region. The upcoming project is rumoured to be inspired by the seventh wonder, “Taj Mahal”, a magnificent structure in Agra, India. 

As per insider reports, it is going to be funded by European family offices and is a joint venture of Dubai and India based major infrastructure companies. There are rumours that the “Taj Mahal” inspired project will be a hotel; however, there has been no official confirmation from anyone yet. 

The reports also suggest that four Caribbean countries are lined up to get the massive structure, but the location is not finalized yet. Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, St Kitts and Nevis, St Lucia are after the investors to get it in their country. Once the location is decided, the $300 million worth project will transform and increase tourism by three times of the country and it will also boost the inflow of tourists all across the Caribbean.

The “Taj Mahal” in India is a symbol of love; similarly, it is also going to be a representation of love, passion and desire in the Caribbean.

The Caribbean region relies on tourism, and all-island countries’ have tourism-based economies, which are facing the backlashes of the COVID-19 pandemic. A new structure and tourism attraction besides beaches and paradise is eminent to boom the sector. The upcoming project in the region will definitely make the Caribbean stand in the world for something different from what it already offers.
