Bolstering the industry is a $70m redevelopment of the Providenciales International Airport, the primary gateway. To be completed in early 2011 is the first phase, which includes lengthening the runway to accommodate more frequent flights from Europe, Asia and South America. The TCI continues to reap awards in the travel industry sector. At the prestigious World Travel Awards 2010, Grace Bay Beach regained the honour of the Caribbean's Best Beach while Grace Bay Club and Point Grace, two venerable Providenciales resorts, earned, respectively, titles of the Caribbean's Leading Resort and the Caribbean's Leading Boutique Hotel. Adding to TCI's wide range of business/commercial centres is The Regent Village, a new shopping plaza in the heart of Providenciales' thriving Grace Bay area.
TCI enjoys duty-free access to Canadian markets under CARIBCAN and privileged access to European Union markets. TCI is an Associate member of CARICOM, and is eligible for designation as a beneficiary country under the Caribbean Basin Initiative (CBI) of the US.
