  1. Why would Cubans want to come here to buy anything unless they are granted duty free concessions which would add little to our economy because of the lost revenue and because they would overnight in our cheapest hotels before going home?

    If they were not granted duty free concessions, there would be nothing for them to buy and even less for them to sell in a country with such high import duties and VAT as ours.

    Given our high retirement income and net worth, we would surely be in the upper 10 percent of the local population in wealth, yet when we come home for the 3-5 months every year from one of the richest countries on God’s earth, my wife and I feel like paupers because of the high cost of goods and low productivity of nearly all services — which inflates their cost — except for things like our cheap and efficient van service.

    So, why really would Cubans want to come to our blessed homeland?

  2. C ben David people like you belong in the gutter you’re so myopic and ignorant. A brainless watch dog.

  3. Who said they coming to buy anything? Some Vincentians do not appreciate what we have here, we have our share of challenges like any other country but we have a lot to offer. We are unique in many ways. Personally, I’m anxious that the airline is coming to expose Vincentians to Cuba’s unique culture, shopping there would be a bonus.

  5. Why these so call Vincentian continue to degrade their country of birth. Is it only shopping we have to offer in this blessed land, what about our beautiful scenery, lush mountains valleys, our cultured events and beautiful white, black, grey and Brown sand beaches. Yes Cuba may have a similarity, which will offer a holiday break for our fellow Vincentian but what Cuba and other Caribbean islands don’t have is 32 islands waiting to explore.

    • AIA was built to almost exclusively to bring tourists to only one of these 32 islands, St. Vincent Island.

      There are not enough wealthy Vincentians and wealthy Cubans to make this service viable and not enough things for them or any tourists to do on the mainland.

      Let us simply accept out beloved country for what it is and stop trying to transform it into something it could never become.

  6. How do you define Tourist? Tourist, ‘noun’ a person who travels for pleasure. If they are coming to shop for duty free concessions, aren’t they still considered as Tourists?

  7. You cannot expect much more from the instrument of negativity, hiding behind the pseudonym C BEN DAVID

  8. Once again WE have to suffer gross Negativism of Mr. Gloom , He never ever takes a break . He & his Sidekick Mr. Doom are
    perpetually critical of what the Government does or plans to do .

    Mr. Gloom has written 50 plus articles in this Paper , all
    critical of mainland SVG . He falsely claims that on the mainland there exists nothing to attract Tourists . He apparently thinks that Black sand is unattractive , never mind the fact that Hawaii , which he frequently talks about
    also has a Volcan & Black sand Beaches .
