The Bahamas remains open for tourism business despite the destruction caused in parts of the Northern Bahamas by Hurricane Dorian, Acting Minister of Tourism and Aviation Frankie Campbell said recently.

Addressing more than 200 participants and officials attending the Opening Ceremony of the 2019 Optimist North America Championship underway in Montagu Bay, Minister Campbell told the group that The Bahamas is a 16-island destination – 14 of which were not impacted and/or adversely impacted by Hurricane Dorian.


Minister Campbell said while Dorian caused major damage in parts of Abaco and Grand Bahama, the destinations of The Bahamas remain open for tourism business.

Minister Campbell encouraged the athletes to use the competition to develop longstanding relationships that will prove to be beneficial to them as individuals and groupings for “years to come.”

He said relationships developed by the government of The Bahamas has resulted in “extraordinary responses from friends from countries around the globe” – including those in the region – who have rallied to The Bahamas’ side in the aftermath of the hurricane.

Grand Bahama Shipyard has announced that it dry-docked its first vessel since reopening the shipyard shortly after Hurricane Dorian hit The Bahamas last month.

Domestic economic developments, according to the latest report by The Central Bank of The Bahamas, remained healthy through August. However, this pre-dates the passage of Hurricane Dorian which caused extensive damages to private and public sector infrastructure in Grand Bahama and Abaco. Read the full report here.
