Minister for Grand Bahama Dr. Michael Darville believes in a tripartite agreement for economic growth and development for the island of Grand Bahama – which is inclusive of the government, the Grand Bahama Port Authority and the Grand Bahama Chamber of Commerce.

Minister Darville stressed that point again as he welcomed newly-appointed executives of the Grand Bahama Chamber of Commerce, who paid a courtesy call on the Minister January 12 at the Ministry for Grand Bahama.

Representing the Chamber at the meeting were Michael Holding (President), Daniel Romence (1st Vice-President), Lawrence Palmer (2nd Vice-President), Mercynth Ferguson (Executive Director), Karin Sanchez (Secretary) and Ralph Hepburn (Treasurer).

During their meeting, Minister Darville reminded the Chamber board executives of the newly-launched Grand Bahama Investment Incentive Bill, which came about in 2016. He said that it was a landmark bill and he looks forward to going through the intricate aspects of it with members of the Chamber, in particular the regulatory framework of the legislation.

The Minister said he wanted to work with all stakeholders to develop a “one-stop-shop” for doing business in Grand Bahama and address immigration reform.

“We want wide consultation across the business sector because ultimately the goal is to improve the ease of doing business and to take us to a higher level.”

President of the Grand Bahama Chamber of Commerce Michael Holding said that the Chamber looks forward to working closely with the Ministry of Grand Bahama as well as with all other government agencies.

The Chief Justice of The Bahamas, Sir Hartman Longley and Attorney General of The Bahamas, Senator Allyson Maynard Gibson, were in Grand Bahama 13 January, 2017, for the Opening of the 2017 Legal Year - Northern Region.

Bahamasair made its inaugural flight to Port-au-Prince, Haiti, 14 January, 2017, touching down at Toussaint Louverture International Airport.
