Tourism and Economic Development Study


The Government of the USVI has engaged the University of the Virgin Islands, Center for Excellence in Leadership and Learning (UVI CELL) in the creation of the 5-year USVI Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) and the Tourism Master Plan (TMP). The CEDS is a locally-based, regionally-driven economic development planning process and document that allows regions to identify strengths and weaknesses and brings together a diverse set of partners to generate jobs, diversify the economy, and spur economic growth.

The TMP will capture and address post-hurricane and post-COVID-19 impacts on the tourism industry and identify ways to make the industry less vulnerable to economic downturns and natural disasters. The goal is to develop a TMP that lays out the path to a more competitive, diversified, sustainable, and resilient tourism industry for the territory. Your participation and feedback are critical to the development of the USVI CEDS/TMP. Please provide your honest and candid responses to the survey questions below.  Your responses are anonymous and you will not be identified by your response.  Thank you for your participation!
