Prime Minister Perry Christie February 19 gave the keynote address at the opening of Freeport Insurance Agents & Brokers Ltd.

The Prime Minister congratulated Lawrence Palmer, Donald Ward and Deborah Knowles for opening their new business and added he felt the economy of Freeport will continue to get better.


Also addressing the opening was Minister for Grand Bahama Dr Michael Darville, who also congratulated the new owners, saying it was a pleasure to be there as the government was doing its part in encouraging entrepreneurial opportunities.

“This is all due to an aggressive programme that’s been put in place by the Prime Minister. He is here today to be a part of this, and I understand that it is an investment of $250,000 that would have been injected into the local economy, it has created five new jobs for Grand Bahamians.”

Present at the event were: Minister of Tourism Obie Wilchcombe; Minister of State for Investments Khaalis Rolle; Kevin Seymour, president of the Grand Bahama Chamber of Commerce; and Peter Turnquest, deputy leader of the Free National Movement and MP for East Grand Bahama.
