We are extremely encouraged by the Government’s announced policies of offering incentives and benefits for constructing cinema multiplexes and this will be one of many that we hope to construct island-wide.  The complex will also strengthen the asset-base of the Group and will enable us to ensure that our stakeholders benefit from sustainable value,” he added.
