Two members of the National Development Plan (NDP) committee travelled to Grand Bahama March 17 for a series of forums as a part of the first phase of their mission.


Nicola Virgil-Rolle, director of economic development and planning, along with Samantha Rolle, project officer in the Office of the Prime Minister, discussed the objectives of the committee and what type of feedback is needed from residents in order to compile a comprehensive 25-year plan for the country.

Following the 20-minute presentation, residents were encouraged to ask questions.

It is expected the plan will be completed by the end of 2015.

Chairman of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Bahamas Prime Minister Perry Christie will be part of the delegation expected to meet with US President Barack Obama next month ahead of the Seventh Summit of the Americas in Panama City April 10-11. Watch an interview with Christie about the meeting here.

New York, London, Hong Kong and Singapore remain the four leading global financial centres. New York remains the top centre, but by only one point on a scale of 1,000 over its nearest rival London. Tokyo, in fifth place, is 32 points behind the leaders, according to the 17th Global Financial Centres Index published this week by Z/Yen Group and sponsored by the Qatar Financial Centre Authority.
