Bermuda Premier Paula A Cox will be the recipient of the 2011 Regional Woman of The Year Award to be presented during the Women’s Empowerment Summit 2011, April 27, at Atlantis Paradise Island.

The summit, themed “Embrace Your Power,” is a one-day conference hosted by Oyster Publications (Bahamas) Ltd featuring key speakers on leadership training and motivational activities.


In its third year, the event provides information and resources that support national partnerships, stimulate intellectual and life changing dialogue, develop future industry leaders, and promote The Bahamas as an international business services centre.

“Our goal this year is to bring more than 400 diverse and distinguished women and young girls together in collaboration with the support of the US Embassy Bahamas for the further development of comprehensive programmes and services that help advance women’s issues and more importantly, contribute to the overall development of The Bahamas and the Caribbean region,” says Portia Harrigan, managing director of Oyster Publications (Bahamas).

She adds: “It is important that, as we move forward, we prepare ourselves, the entire community–men, women and children–to function efficiently and effectively, if we are to remain competitive in this evolving global economy.”

The Regional Woman of The Year Award is presented to a woman from the Caribbean region who has made significant and demonstrable contributions to her community throughout her career.

Director General of Tourism at the Ministry of Tourism and Aviation David Johnson is hoping that improved air links and connections will help turn around Grand Bahama's economy. He is also looking at the possibility of fast ferry services to other islands.

The Bahamas Telecommunications Company (BTC) has been privatized with the sale of 51 per cent of shares to Cable & Wireless Communications (CWC) Plc. The global telecommunications company completed the acquisition of the national company for $210 million during an official signing in Nassau.
