AlivPrime Minister Dr Hubert Minnis accepted a $100,000 donation from telecommunications firm Aliv to help fund The Bahamas’ participation in Dubai Expo 2020, during a check presentation at the Office of the Prime Minister October 28.

The funds will go toward the development of The Bahamas Pavilion that will showcase the resilience of The Bahamas in the wake of Hurricane Dorian and what the country has to offer to the global community, including investment opportunities, skills and culture.


The six-month Expo, which runs October 2020 to April 2021, will feature 180 countries and is expected to attract 25 million visitors from across the globe. The theme of the Dubai 2020 Expo is “Connecting minds, creating the future.”

The initiative is being driven by the Government’s National Committee for Expo 2020, which is comprised of government agencies, academia, the private sector and civil society.

The Prime Minister thanked Aliv – the title sponsor – for the donation and noted the importance of public and private sector partnerships.

Prime Minister Minnis urged Bahamas Pavilion organizers to use the opportunity to announce to the world that The Bahamas is still open for business following Hurricane Dorian.

The fiscal deficit continued to improve during the first quarter of the fiscal year, based on preliminary estimates in the latest budget performance report. The government has plans to revise its fiscal estimates moving forward following Hurricane Dorian.

The Bahamas' financial services sector hopes to make inroads into the Middle Eastern market with a series of events this month - all of which will lay the groundwork for the country's presence at the Dubai Expo 2020.
