The Investiture of the Honorary Consul of the Republic of Ireland Brian Quinn at the Irish Consulate overlooking Lake Waterloo on East Bay Street in Nassau took place February 11, 2013.


At the event, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Immigration Fred Mitchell said the establishment of the Republic of Ireland Consulate would further deepen diplomatic relations between the countries, which were established in 2007.

“Now that Ireland has established a constant physical presence in Nassau, I trust that this step in our relationship will be a well-placed and solid one,” Mitchell said.

John Basset presented Letters of Credence in February 2011 accrediting him (Non-Resident) Ambassador to The Bahamas, while Brian Quinn was later named Honorary Consul.

Bassett and his wife also paid a courtesy call on Governor-General Sir Arthur Foulkes February 14 at Government House.

This month, hundreds of business executives and investment authority delegates, as well as regional government leaders, will converge on Grand Bahama for the Bahamas International Investment and Business Forum. The event, a collaborative effort between The Grand Bahama Port Authority, Ltd (GBPA), the Bahamas Investment Authority and the Commonwealth Business Council, will serve in meeting numerous objectives that are priorities for both The Bahamas government and GBPA.

Grand Bahama will host a major investment and economic forum this week. The Bahamas International Investment and Business Forum runs February 20-21 at the Grand Lucayan Freeport. Watch an interview with Minister of State for Investment Khaalis Rolle here.
