The Cayman Islands has distinguished itself from other special economic zones and favourable tax jurisdictions, such as Malta, Singapore and Cyprus, with the establishment of the Cayman Maritime Services Park (CMSP). CMSP is a component of Cayman Enterprise City (CEC), an award winning Special Economic Zone, which enables businesses within the maritime industry to efficiently and cost-effectively set up a genuine physical presence with offshore company and staffed offices to generate an active business income onshore, in the Cayman Islands. Companies that establish in this international maritime centre can take advantage of Cayman’s jurisdictional benefits, along with a series of globally competitive concessions granted by the Cayman Islands Government.
