DNA: A New Reality for Grand Bahama Island - May 4, 2016 - 12:03:12 PM

Weeks after the launch of the Bahamas Junkanoo Carnival celebrations on Grand Bahama Island, the soca induced delirium associated with the festival has worn off and slowly but surely, Bahamians are snapping back to reality. And what a sad reality it is. Now that the party is over, Grand Bahamians are once again faced with astronomical energy costs and a stagnant economy. A reality where thousands of Bahamians continue to lose their homes; and one without job opportunities for qualified individuals.

With unemployment already at record numbers, even more Bahamians may soon find themselves in the unemployment line. In just over a month, the iconic Grand Lucayan Hotel which has been a staple of the Grand Bahama tourism product will be sold. Back in March, the owners of the 409 acre property announced plans to sell the resort – the third largest in the country – in a sealed bidding process...

Belize City (CRFM)—Caribbean countries have a living bank of marine resources from which they collectively cash out hundreds of millions of dollars a year to support emerging national economies by providing good jobs, food and foreign exchange, among other benefits. However, in order to remain active and competitive in the global marketplace, countries have had to find ways to surmount the challenges posed by stringent international standards called sanitary and phytosanitary (SPS) measures, for food safety and for protection against diseases carried animals and plants.

Under an EU-funded SPS Measures Project, the ability of Caribbean countries to effectively address those challenges is being strengthened through initiatives...

Nassau, Bahamas - Dr. Hubert Minnis, leader of the Free National Movement (FNM), issued the following statement on the murder rate rising over 20% more than under any previous government.

“Our country is yet again on track to see the deadliest year in the history of The Bahamas. It seems like each day more innocent lives are being taken In just four years this Government has seen more murders than the previous five years combined. What’s disappointing – but not surprising to Bahamians – is that the Government failed to produce their crime plan in 2015 and once they finally did in February of this year, it was a series of recycled programs that have failed to stem this growing problem...
