The Index is our annual ranking of jurisdictions in the Caribbean based on their policy/regulatory environment, projects developed to date, and future projects planned. This year, we expanded the ranking to include a record 29 jurisdictions, including, for the first time, Cuba.

This year’s Marketplace includes information on over 330 projects.
