Friday, June 2, 2017 8:11 PM- George's, Grenada

ST. GEORGE’S, GRENADA, June 2, 2017 – GIS: 2017 is proving to be a year of opportunity and productivity for some of the island’s unemployed citizens.

According to Prime Minister Dr. Keith Mitchell more people now have confidence in finding a job and have thus returned to the ranks of active job-seekers.

Dr. Mitchell said a number of new and expanded projects, including the Kawana Bay Resort, the expansion of the Levera Project and the Breakwater project in St. Patrick  are among the factors contributing to this hopeful environment.

“There are several major bridge and road construction projects in St. John’s and St. Patrick’s; and the St. David’s Agro Inc is already seeing huge returns on its Sour Sop tea products.

These new projects have added hundreds of jobs so far this year,” Dr. Mitchell said.


Prime Minister Mitchell believes unemployment figures will continue on a slow but sure down-ward trend.


“The economy has returned to a positive growth path....  Although unemployment is still high, labour force participation has increased. Public unemployment levels continue to fall—albeit slowly.”

Dr. Mitchell was speaking to Grenadians through a national address on Thursday.
