In continuation of its strategic priorities, The Bahamas Development Bank (BDB) met with the country’s representative of the Organization of American States (OAS) Phyllis Baron.

The purpose of the meeting was to explore opportunities and avenues to strengthen efforts to better assist micro, small and medium-sized enterprises.


In addition, the bank explored opportunities for institutional strengthening and available technical assistance in a number of areas.

The BDB and OAS said that they can collectively support economic development, particularly as the bank works within its statutory mandate to grow and diversify the economy.

As a newly-appointed representative of OAS Baron noted that OAS has made significant contributions to the broader economy by working with a number of other government agencies and strategic partners, contributing $2.8 million in scholarships and $3 million in trade and economic development in 2018.

General manager at Resorts World Bimini Vince Angelo says that the facility has seen an increase in both domestic and international visitors. Watch an interview with Angelo here.

Co-founder and CEO of Bahamian blockchain firm PO8 Matthew Arnett represented The Bahamas at an innovative technology conference in Africa recently, as the tech start-up looks to enter the African market.
