Vision 2040

Vision 2040

Vision 2040 is the long-term economic strategy and action plan for the U.S. Virgin Islands. It was created through an interactive, participatory process.

The 20-year economic development plan positions the Territory as a vibrant, desirable place to live, work, and visit. The goal is to promote a prosperous business location that is competitive based on its ability to develop, retain, and attract a skilled workforce.

What is Vision 2040?

Vision 2040 is the most comprehensive economic development plan ever presented for the U.S. Virgin Islands. The 20-year plan provides recommendations for economic diversification to facilitate wealth generation and job creation in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Who is leading the Vision 2040 effort?

USVIEDA is leading the Vision 2040 initiative. In the spirit of collaboration, a Task Force of government officials, local non-profits, and stakeholders was assembled to oversee the vision. Vision 2040 was developed through extensive public engagement, namely town hall meetings and surveys of the local business community, non-profits, residents, and the Virgin Islands Diaspora.

A consulting team, led by Camoin Associates, Inc., assisted USVIEDA in creating the Vision 2040 plan. Implementation will be in the hands of all Virgin Islanders living in the Territory and abroad with continued support from public, private, and non-profit partners.
