Seatrade Cruise Conference logoFORT LAUDERDALE (SFCN) – The Bahamas recently hosted three receptions and co-sponsored the culminating gala dinner of the Florida Caribbean Cruise Association at the 33rd Annual Seatrade Cruise Conference in Ft. Lauderdale.

The Bahamas’ unforgettable slogan “It’s Better in The Bahamas” and its brand recognition, was evidenced by the attendance of more than 500 delegates at sponsored events.

Seatrade is a leading international exhibition and conference event bringing together buyers and suppliers for a week of networking, sourcing, innovation, and education, with more than 700 exhibitors and 12,000 visitors.


The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism’s Sr. Director of Cruise and Maritime Development asserts that she is ‘committed to inclusion and synergy which brokers cooperative liaisons and partnerships with key stakeholders, both International and Domestic’, and the recognition of The Bahamas as the leader in cruising.

The Ministry’s partnership pursuits were realized in the co-sponsoring of the first official Cruise Line International Association’s (CLIA) Business-to-Business Networking and Seatrade’s VIP Speakers Reception for delegates on the opening night of Seatrade.

The passage of Hurricane Matthew in October dominated domestic developments in the last quarter of 2016. The aftermath of the storm disrupted tourism output and stalled fiscal consolidation efforts but the subsequent rebuilding activity, along with the re-start of several varied-scale foreign investment projects, provided positive stimulus to the construction sector and employment figures.

Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Perry Christie announced in the House of Assembly, March 29, 2017, that the government has approved the relaxation of certain Exchange Control measures to provide access by certain categories of Bahamian-owned businesses to investment financing in foreign currency.
