A simplified menu listed in the application included main dishes of goat in sauce, turkey in sauce, chicken in sauce, red snapper in sauce, griot (fried pork), soup joumou (Haitain squash soup) and bouillon (Haitan beef stew).

Bahamas Government to Liberalize Investment Process for Areas Affected by Hurricane Dorian

Published

By

Hurricane Dorian caused US$3.5 billion in damages and losses, according to IDB and ECLAC.

NASSAU, The Bahamas, Friday January
17, 2020
– The
Government is looking to simplify investment requirements and expedite
investment applications for Bahamian and international investors for Abaco, the
Abaco Cays, and East End and West End, Grand Bahama, Prime Minister Dr Hubert
Minnis has announced.

“We will
liberalize the process of investment for the affected areas,” the Prime
Minister told hundreds of local and international delegates attending the
Hurricane Dorian Pledging Conference at the Baha Mar Convention Centre this
week.

“Hard and
difficult decisions must be made if we are to rebuild, rebuild quickly, smartly
and with resilience.”

Further
details are expected to be released in the weeks ahead, said Prime Minister
Minnis.

Representatives
of governments, multilateral agencies and financial institutions attended the
Pledging Conference, which was geared towards mobilizing recovering financing
for Hurricane Dorian. It was held under the theme ‘Rebuilding a Stronger and
More Resilient Bahamas’ and US$1.5 billion was pledged in recovery funding and
in-kind services, which was just under half the estimated losses and damage the
Category 5 hurricane caused when it made landfall in the archipelago in
September 2019.

Abaco and
Grand Bahama reconstruction and recovery efforts are expected to get a boost
from the event which was organized by the Government of The Bahamas in
partnership with the United National Development Programme (UNDP).

The Prime
Minister said the Conference and other such efforts are an essential part of
the rebuilding process.

The
Government has already prepared specific reconstruction delivery plans, which
have been cross-referenced with the US$3.4 billion damage and loss assessment
by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and the United Nations Economic
Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (UNECLAC).

The plans
focus on housing, the environment and debris clean up, education, health,
infrastructure and the economy. From the reconstruction delivery plans,
specific project concepts have been identified.

“Let me
re-emphasize that private sector, NGO and international contributions must be
aligned with the priority areas of the Government of The Bahamas,” said Prime
Minister Minnis.

He noted
that progress is being made on the ground on Abaco, the Abaco Cays and Grand
Bahama, including the removal of debris and the restoration of various
services.

“Despite the progress, someone visiting, especially Abaco and the Abaco Cays, these four months later, will be shocked by the scope and scale of the devastation and the enormous, complex and many challenges of rebuilding,” he added, stressing that there is still a “very long road ahead”.
