Rob Jarrett Speech – Cape Verde Foundation Event

Boa Tarde, my name is Rob Jarrett and I am the Chairman of The Resort Group PLC who is responsible for building, so far, 5 Hotels in Cape Verde, amongst other companies that it owns. I have created a lot of job opportunities for the Cape Verdean community, so as an example, approximately 98% of people that I employ in Cape Verde are Cape Verdean. I am a businessman and entrepreneur but I am also a philanthropist and I am strong believer in helping those in need. That is the principle reason for The Resort Group establishing The Cape Verde Foundation.
