Quatar considering Sports Village and Mega Yacht Marina in Grenada

ST. GEORGE’S, GRENADA, May 8, 2017 – GIS: Qatar, one of the most advanced Arab states, is seriously considering the construction of a sports village and mega yacht marina in Grenada.

Prime Minister Dr. Keith Mitchell made this disclosure after meeting with Qatar’s minister of finance during a recent overseas trip.

The meeting was held at the request of Qatar’s minister for finance.


“They said they would seriously consider and they would send a technical team to look at the sports village where, for example, we can reclaim the land from the cruise ship section right up to Queen’s Park – in other words, you’ll be expanding St. George’s by several acres,”Dr. Mitchell said.

“You would have a lot of office buildings, you would have more businesses being accommodated in St. George’s and you would be able to do a lot more sporting activities.

Instead of having cricket, football and athletics, you should be able to have all other sports”.

Qatar plans to send a technical team to Grenada to carry out site visits and meetings with local officials to discuss the projects.

“They also wanted to look at a mega yacht port service in the Carenage area as a possibility.

We look forward to hosting them here not too long from now, when we can follow up on some major initiatives,” PM Mitchell said.

Qatar is a high income economy, backed by the world's third largest natural gas reserves and oil reserves with the highest per capita income in the world.
