Prime Minister Dr Hubert Minnis addressed Parliament 20 March 2018 during the House of Assembly debate on the Mid-year Budget.

Read the Prime Minister’s address here:

Mr. Speaker:
I rise today to make my contribution to the debate on the 2017/18 Mid-Year Budget Performance Statement.

I do so on behalf of the wonderful people of Killarney, whom I have the privilege of serving in this chamber.

I wish to address today a number of important national issues, as well as a number of items in my portfolio.

I will address the successes of my Government, and our vision for the country, and acknowledge where we have committed errors, and made miss-steps, which need to be corrected.

We will be honest with the Bahamian people about where we failed, and what we will do to improve governance.

A recent editorial in The Nassau Guardian dated 14
March, 2018 noted:

“The Minnis administration has had successes. The economy is growing. It did not during the Christie administration, drifting from stagnation to recession. Last year it grew by 1.8 percent. This year 2.5 percent growth is projected. That’s good news.”

Nassau Airport Development Co has reported that air arrivals at Nassau’s Lynden Pindling International Airport during December 2017 and January 2018 were the highest in the company’s 11-year history of managing the facility and exceeded pre-recession travel levels for the first time in a decade.
