This new entertainment centre will replace the Sunset Village, destroyed by hurricanes in 2004.

Noula Investment Company was awarded the contract to construct the new facility. The company’s president, Max Quant, expects to have the facility completed in six months.

Signing on behalf of the government was Neko C Grant, Minister of Public Works, Transport and Housing.

Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture Charles Maynard, who addressed the gathering, said that “the project is expected to be the benchmark for where we go moving forward in building cultural villages throughout our family of islands.”

The Bahamas government has provided requisite approvals for the sale of the Atlantis Paradise Island resort by Kerzner International Holdings to Brookfield Asset Management, on certain conditions. Read the full statement here.

Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham highlighted the historic importance of Arawak Port Development (APD) Ltd's public share offering at the port's official opening this week.
