Minister for Grand Bahama Dr Michael Darville officially welcomed to Grand Bahama Claudio Bisogniero, Non-Resident Ambassador of Italy to The Bahamas, February 20.

Ambassador Bisogniero is based in Washington DC. He was accompanied during his visit to the Ministry of Grand Bahama by Emanuele Gariboldi, Italy’s Honorary Consul General in The Bahamas, who resides in Grand Bahama.


The Bahamas and Italy established formal diplomatic relations in 1978.

Dr Darville told the ambassador that during his stay on Grand Bahama the Ministry will show why Grand Bahama has established a first class reputation as a major maritime and transshipment centre.

“You will see that our maritime industry encompasses a wide range of sectors including ship registry, ship and mega yacht repair, oil transshipment and storage and international cargo transshipment.”

“We believe that Grand Bahama Island has a lot of potential to develop its natural resources and is poised to become a global shipping and business centre in preparation for the opening of the expanded Panama Canal in early 2015,” he stressed.

Dr Darville said it is his desire to foster a mutually beneficial relationship that will allow the equal exchange of information and that they can create valuable opportunities for trade expansion, transference of technical expertise and knowledge in tourism, maritime and industry, energy and financial services sector.

Ambassador Bisogniero said he was pleased to be in Grand Bahama and that it was important that he visited the island to see first hand the investment opportunities that exist here.

He also encouraged Dr Darville to lead a trade mission to Italy, which he will help to organize.

The Grand Bahama Chamber of Commerce and the Ministry for Grand Bahama have forged a good working relationship, designed to further the growth and development of Grand Bahama, according to officials.

As the 1955 Hawksbill Creek Agreement approaches its 60th anniversary, Grand Bahama Chamber of Commerce President Barry Malcolm has spoken of the business community's hope that it will continue to bolster Freeport's economy once certain concessions are re-negotiated.
