Welcome Message from The Prime Minister of The Bahamas
Welcome Message from
The Right Honourable Perry Christie
Prime Minister of The Bahamas
The Bahamas International Business & Investment Forum will highlight the key advantages The Bahamas, and Grand Bahama in particular, will have in capitalising on the expansion of the Panama Canal, which is due to be completed in 2014. The event will also showcase The Bahamas as a global investment destination of choice with a wide range of opportunities across a number of key sectors.
Held under the theme ‘At the Crossroads of 21st Century Trade and Investment,’ the Forum will be organised by the Government of The Bahamas, the Commonwealth Business Council and the Grand Bahama Port Authority.
It will be a key opportunity for us to articulate our trade and investment priorities and reach out to both domestic and international business. There will be strong participation by Ministers, key Government officials and senior business leaders from The Bahamas and overseas.
The Forum will be global in its outlook, attracting businesses and investors from the region and around the world, with a focus on Asia, Africa, Europe and the Americas. The Bahamas offers a fantastic gateway to the Eastern Seaboard of North, South and Central America and to the Caribbean.
As well as highlighting the potential for the development of maritime and logistics industries, the Forum will focus on opportunities in banking and financial services, tourism, real estate, ICT, business services and the knowledge economy, energy exploration, renewable energy, agriculture and manufacturing.
The event will be a an ideal platform to explore the opportunities in The Bahamas and to enjoy our warm hospitality and natural beauty of our country.
I look forward to welcoming you to the Forum.
