First item on the agenda: economic growth was created based on recent news and conversations with public sector leaders. KPMG is pleased to share best in class examples of how islands are not only recovering but prospering and punching above their weight.

Island jurisdictions are hard at work diversifying their economies, educating to meet the demands of a digital future, aggressively introducing energy and food sustainability, and attracting inward investment. Simultaneously, the world has changed. Remote working, a renewed sense of commitment to the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and increasing inflation are part of the new reality.

The pandemic created unprecedented change, and with it a greater acceptance of the necessity for change and the potential for renewal and innovation. KPMG is excited to witness this renewed commitment to sustainability and economic development amongst our public sector and corporate clients. We sincerely believe that ultimately those jurisdictions which aim for expansive sustainability will experience higher rates of economic growth.
