An advance team of the Organization of American States (OAS) led by Ambassador Francisco Lainez visited The Bahamas for the second preliminary meeting to coordinate preparations for the 50th OAS General Assembly, which is scheduled to be held on New Providence, June 9-12, 2020.


The team met with counterparts from various government agencies for the two-day meeting, January 28-29.

Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Peter Derveaux-Isaacs welcomed the team and said that it was a great opportunity for the country to be showcased to the world.

The Bahamian team is led by former Ambassador to the United Nations Dr Paulette Bethel.

The Cat Island Conservation Institute is calling for greater urgency to address United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Goals following recent global and local environmental catastrophes such as Hurricane Dorian, which ravaged the Northern Bahamas, and the wildfires in Australia.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Peter Turnquest said given the revenue loss and expenditure increases the government expects to incur, the fiscal deficit for FY2019/20 is now expected to increase by approximately $677.5 million, to 5.3 per cent of the gross domestic product.
