The rapid growth in Antigua and Barbuda’s tourism and real estate sectors has created a high demand for skilled construction workers.

Prime Minister Gaston Browne noted the need for construction expertise, driven by major hotel projects and high-end private properties.

He emphasized that the country has attracted more luxury properties than other Caribbean nations, including projects in the PLH Project, Jumby Bay, Windward Beach, Galley Bay Heights, Pearns Point, and Mill Reef Club.

PM Browne recounted a contractor’s need to double his 150-person workforce for upcoming projects, including the Nikki Beach Hotel Development, the Marriot Resort at Yeptons, and the potential One-and-Only resort at Half Moon Bay.

To address this, the government is considering recruiting skilled workers from outside the Caribbean to meet the growing labor demand and support the country’s development and economic growth.
