St. Vincent and the Grenadines: A technopole for plant based research

St. Vincent and the Grenadines has positioned itself on the world stage in the 21st Century in the areas of international affairs, regional and local development.

The construction of the Argyle International Airport, the current widespread development in tourism, fisheries expansion, biodiversity conservation, and green energy / geothermal exploration places this geographically small island in the “Rising Star” category globally.

Today, the children of the almost two decades old Education Revolution are returning to their country. This is taking place at a time when the island’s Agricultural Sector is deepening its diversification production platform aimed to increase the profitability of the sectors to raise the standard of living of those that depend on this burgeoning Industry.

The recently passed Plant Breeders Rights Act, has opened the door for scientists from around the world to come to St. Vincent and the Grenadines to conduct research, knowing that their work will be legally protected.

The emerging modern plant-based medicinal research industry in the Caribbean is the future, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines is leading on this path.

St. Vincent and the Grenadines has successfully established a brand in the Western Hemisphere as a prime destination not only for tourism but for research in plant-based medicine. This new era is expected to attract investors interested in funding researchers, with the ultimate goal – the improvement of healthcare for all of humanity.
