During the economic downturn, The Bahamas Government commenced substantial infrastructural development initiatives. These included the redevelopment of the country’s principal airport, which is the largest public sector project ever undertaken in The Bahamas; the deepening of Nassau Harbor, which now accommodates the world’s largest passenger vessels; and the creation of a new cargo port just outside the City of Nassau. We are also presently in the midst of extensive upgrades to existing road arteries and the development of new thoroughfares throughout New Providence, as well as other islands of The Bahamas.
In April, 2011, the government privatised the local telecommunications company, with the expectation of wider and higher quality services, as well as reduced costs to the consumer, in particular to the business community.
Each of these initiatives have served more effectively to connect The Bahamas internally and to the international markets to which we cater.
