  1. So let me see if I understand this. You build an airport FIRST and THEN address the matter of local bed capacity and on-island attractions AFTER? Is this not a classic Cart before Horse scenario? After the tragic series of missteps, I’d love to see us get both the airport and Buccament right so I have a few additional questions:

    1. What is the current condition of the Buccament plant?
    2. Can it be practically made ready for the start of the 2019 Winter season…much less Carnival? If so, when would the marketing efforts for this need to begin, what will be the cost and who will pay for this?
    3. How long would the institutional/legal aspects of the sale take before ownership is fully transferred?
    4. Are there already investors interested in Buccament? If so, have they passed investment due diligence in order to ensure that the new owners are of a better calibre than the original developers?
    5. Would the new Buccament investor.owner be responsible for international promotion of its property and negotiating the airlift to move its guests to their property or would Vincentian taxpayers be expected to carry the cost of the airport operations, market support for airlift as well as Buccament marketing? If the latter, what is the ROI formula being used to justify this?
