Minister of State for Grand Bahama Kwasi Thompson has told residents of Grand Bahama that developers of two major projects on the island have reconfirmed their commitment to the island.

Minister Thompson made the announcement during a press conference, September 16.

He said that partners in two major projects for Grand Bahama – the Carnival Cruise Port and the Royal Caribbean and ITM negotiations with respect to the Grand Lucayan – have been in contact with the government, have been on island and have confirmed their commitments to proceed with those developments.


“Negotiations are continuing this week and next week with respect to Royal Caribbean and ITM, and the Carnival signing of the HOA will proceed,” he added.

Minister Thompson also advised of the status of government offices on the island, which just over two weeks ago was ravaged by Category 5 Hurricane Dorian. He applauded the efforts of those, who suffered significant damage yet worked tirelessly throughout the storm and continue to do so.

The Office of the Prime Minister is open to the public and operates from 9am to noon.

The Ministry of Tourism is operating from their office in Fidelity’s Building from 9am to noon.

The Met Office, Civil Aviation and Bahamasair are all open and functioning, as well as Grand Bahama Health Services. The departments of Statistics, Education, and Environmental Health, are all open also.

The Housing Department and Mortgage Corporation, Consumer Affairs, the Attorney General’s office, BTVI, BAIC, and the Post Office are not functional but are in the process of getting their offices up and running.

An update will be given shortly as to when these offices will be functional.

Engel & Völkers Bahamas has announced that the Andrews Group has joined the brokerage firm at its Nassau office.

Baha Mar resort in Nassau has committed $2 million in financial aid to support immediate disaster relief and long-term recovery for Bahamians severely impacted by Hurricane Dorian.
