The Ministry of Financial Services is partnering with the Rotaract Club of East Nassau, the Bahamas Trade Commission and The College of The Bahamas Alumni Association to host a discussion on the World Trade Organization (WTO), December 6, 6pm, at The College of The Bahamas (COB).

“It is consistent with the mandate of the government to have extensive public consultation on all international trade agreements and trade policy of the government,” Financial Services Minister Ryan Pinder said at a November 28 press conference announcing the event.

Similar sessions have been held in Freeport, with service providers and industry professionals, said Pinder.

“Now we bring our interaction and public discourse with the youth of the country, the aspiring professionals, entrepreneurs, and those young persons who look to be active in sectors of the economy that we traditionally haven’t been involved in,” he added.

The panel will include Pinder, Trade Commission chairman Philip Galanis, former Chamber of Commerce president Dionisio D’Aguilar, attorney Willie Moss, East Nassau Rotaract president Jamie Lewis.

Lewis welcomed the opportunity for “greater participation in the national dialogue.”

“It is very important that young people push themselves to the forefront and start to engage in society on all these topical issues,” he added.

In-house financing initiative by Balmoral Development Ltd has promoted sales of condos and town homes in the exclusive New Providence community.
