Saint Helena, Ascension, and Tristan da Cunha Islands
Economic outlines and opportunities for innovation
St Helena’ income primarily comes from agriculture, fishing and tourism but depends heavily upon budgetary support from Britain. Ascension has a small British and American presence, but no significant economic activity. Tristan da Cunha has a fishing industry. Key opportunities for innovation Recycling and energy initiatives have been identified as some of the key areas with a potential for the economic growth. The airport which is going to be opened next year is considered as a great opportunity for enhancing all activities in the islands.
