Prime Minister Perry Christie leaves for New York City today where, along with the Premier of Bermuda, he will speak at the christening of Norwegian Cruise Lines new cruise ship Breakaway.

The ceremony will take place tomorrow.


The new ultra-modern vessel will be the largest ship to homeport in New York and will reopen the more affluent New York/Nassau cruise market.

While in New York the Prime Minister will discuss with KT Lim, chairman of Genting/Resorts World and 50 per cent shareholder in Norwegian Cruise Lines, the conglomerate’s growing investments in The Bahamas.

He will also hold meetings with other investors including multiple international partners in a proposed major development for Grand Bahama.

Accompanying the Prime Minister are Obie Wilchcombe, Minister of Tourism, Sir Baltron Bethel, senior policy advisor and Joy Jibrilu, director of investments.

The Prime Minister returns to Nassau on May 9.

Silver Airways, Florida’s hometown airline and the largest US carrier to The Bahamas, announced today that it has completed its comprehensive fleet upgrade covering the neighboring markets. As of May 2013, the Fort Lauderdale-based carrier will deploy state-or-the-art, 34-seat Saab 340Bplus aircraft exclusively on all 14 routes within the State of Florida, as well as its nine routes between Florida and The Bahamas.

Minister of Foreign Affairs and Immigration Fred Mitchell and other relevant government officials recently held a meeting with the heads of private sector organizations to discuss immigration and work permit issues.
