Antigua and Barbuda: Major Upgrades Coming

Chinese investments will drive a significant pier upgrade for cruise ships in Antigua and Barbuda in the coming years.

Once the China Construction Engineering Company is finished with the destination’s new state-of-the-art airport (this April) they will turn to sweeping the harbor, before a major new port project in Antigua.

“We will enhance the cargo pier and add a new cruise berth,” said Nathan Dundas, president of the Antigua and Barbuda Cruise Tourism Association. “It will be significantly, bigger than the pier we have now and geared toward Oasis-class vessels.”

The agreement signed is valued at $200 million as Antigua is already seeing 700,000 passengers this year, up 20 percent from 2014.
