MESSAGE FROM THE MINISTER FOR GRAND BAHAMA

Welcome to Grand Bahama Island! One of the many 700 islands and cays found in the beautiful island nation of The Bahamas. World renown for our beaches and sub-tropical climate, our shores and waters are a sight of paradise on Earth and on Grand Bahama Island this fact is no different. Our slice of tropical paradise shares a close proximity to the US east coast making it the perfect destination for international business and industry.
What's more, our island’s tax free zone, increasing technological advancements, infrastructural environment and capacity positions it as a great digital paradise through our nation's technology initiative. With all the amenities you need in addition to the tranquil relaxing atmosphere, Grand Bahama island is a place where business can be mixed with tropical pleasure.
As a native, I know that the people of the Bahamas and Grand Bahama in particular are strong, friendly, resilient, and hard-working people. Our ministry wishes to encourage growth, productivity, employment, and entrepreneurship through the various technological, tourism, educational, business, and micro and macro-economic initiatives expanded upon throughout our website.
So I invite all to explore what we as Grand Bahamians have to offer and I look forward to the economic strides we will make together.
