ST. GEORGE’S, GRENADA, April 14, 2014 – GIS:
Prime Minister, Dr. The Right Honourable Keith C. Mitchell, met with H.O.K. Master Planners and Architects in Washi‎ngton DC to discuss his vision for expanding Grenada's Knowledge Economy.

The Master Planners showed the Prime Minister some initial computer models for the development of a Medical Park in Grenada.

This followed a meeting held in Grenada in March with St. George's University Chancellor, HOK Master Planners and other investors‎ to discuss the Medical Park.

Beyond the Medical Park, the Prime Minister discussed with HOK further ideas for creating a knowledge zone that might attract other universities to Grenada, as well as companies ‎providing international services in information and communications technologies (ICT) and other professional services.

Dr. Mitchell expressed the view that Grenada has an opportunity to lead the Caribbean on ICT, given his role in CKLN and ICT amongst CARICOM Heads of Government.

The discussions also considered options for improving the attractiveness of St. George's city for tourism and for realizing the Prime Minister's vision of a Sports Zone surrounding the Queen's Park area.

This would help position Grenada, not only as an international location for Knowledge, Health and Wellness, but also for Vitality.

In the discussions, Dr. Mitchell reflected on the sporting success of Kirani James and the growing trend of sports and vitality in Grenada, including initiatives such as the SSU's "Boot Camp."

Subject to Government approvals, the prospective investors in the Medical Park wish to work with the Government to begin positioning Grenada as a destination for investment in Health, Wellness and Vitality at the upcoming International Medical Tourism Conference in Washington DC this September.
