Welcome to Antigua and Barbuda
Hon. Gaston Browne
Prime Minister of Antigua and Barbuda
Today, over 25 years since joining the Commonwealth, Antigua and Barbuda remains committed to the shared values of tolerance, respect, and equality and to uphold its fundamental principles of democracy, human rights, the rule of law and sustainable socio-economic development.Antigua and Barbuda recognizes that when we work together as a grouping, we can provide the highest possible standards for all Commonwealth people. It is Antigua and Barbuda’s view that through our Commonwealth connections we are stronger. Our solidarity is our strength. Our shared values, conventions and institutions provide the platform to build peace and deliver prosperity to all our people. The Government and people of Antigua and Barbuda cherish this valuable partnership.
Antigua and Barbuda is an ever-evolving mosaic of a region that is widely recognized as a world of its own. Nowhere else in the Antilles will you find so concentrated a mix of the essences of the Caribbean archipelago.
Antigua and Barbuda is a cosmopolitan mecca that welcomes and is enriched by people and cultures from all over the region and the world; each endeavouring, all achieving, as our national anthem affirms.
Visitors will find renewal and rebirth in twin tropical islands ringed with an extravagance of superb beaches and in the spirit of a people who are uniquely spontaneous and welcoming. We welcome the world to an ongoing celebration of the quintessential Caribbean experience and to ready access to business opportunities well beyond the Caribbean.
I look forward to welcoming you, as visitor and investor, to our little bit of paradise and to our two islands where “The Beach is Just the Beginning”.
