Caribbean news. CaribDirect launched in March 2014 ‘The CaribDirect International Business Network’ (CIBN).

CIBN which is gaining regional support as a credible option to assisting the Caribbean to stimulate the region’s economies is pleased to introduce CIBN: Caribbean Construction Conference, a high profile business facilitation event for entrepreneurs who operate within the construction sector and companies that support them.

Our second event is scheduled for Thursday 4th December 2014 entitled ‘Caribbean Construction – Building a sustainable region’. This event will be held in the glamorous Balmoral Room at Kensington Close, Wrights Ln, London W8 5SP from 8.30 am to 4.30 pm. The conference is aimed at companies seeking to trade with and invest in the Caribbean and will cover the following critical topics:

  • Investment Opportunities

  • Regulatory/Legal Frameworks & Policies

If you are a property speculator, real estate developer or construction supplies provider this is the event for you. Join with the award-winning UK based company CaribDirect Multi-Media Limited (CaribDirect) in the delivery of another first class event.



There is no better time to invest in the Caribbean and in particular our two focused Island States (Jamaica and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines) for the CIBN Construction Conference.


As Jamaica positions itself to lead the Caribbean as the logistics hub of the region emphasis is being placed on harmonising to achieve short-term, medium-term and long-term objectives for growth, development and prosperity. To this end the bi-annual Jamaica Diaspora Conference 2015 – a gathering of Jamaicans from the Diaspora namely, UK, USA and Canada primarily – will focus on economic growth and how the Diaspora can assist in this in relation to investment. Construction in its many forms is integral to this program.

Projects available for immediate investment:

Montpelier Residential Lands

Expressions of interest are invited from experienced residential developers for the acquisition of (a) 747 acres of land suitable for residential development in the contiguous parishes of St James and Hanova and (b) a 28.16 acre property zoned for commercial use.

Lot 143 in Johnson Hill is a 7-hectare parcel of land that is slated to be developed into four residential clusters of 52 units with a mix of two-bedroom townhouse units and two and three bedroom duplex homes.
