It is sad when people, like Mr. Roberts, who should know better are so arrogant with their ignorance.

The biggest food wholesaler in The Bahamas is already foreign owned and has been for years. Foreign companies are not and will not be knocking down our doors to come here. We have a very small insignificant market.

Publix was in The Bahamas and pulled out.

We have a unique market so it is unlikely anyone of the big companies will be here soon.

Also look at Shell and ask yourself why they decided that this market was not worth the trouble to them?

Going into **the WTO will open the rest of the world to young entrepreneurial Bahamians.**

Yes Mr. Roberts, those young upperty citizens that that you would like to remind to remember their place.

Let's see. Min of Health Audit shows Min of Health can't account for $100 million each year.

Clean up this loss and you can pay for the $500 million in just 5 years.

Economist says...

We must learn to take responsibility for our actions or failure to act.

This has nothing to do with open boarders. If the Bahamas Defence Force (Bahamian manned) had done there job we would not have all this foolishness in the first place.

Interesting how quick some people are to blame the foreigner and conveniently let the biggest offenders (Bahamians) off the hook.

Look at the colour and shape of the shark. It looks to be a nurse shark. They really if ever pose a danger to anyone.

Good comment.

Whoever wrote this must have been an Obama appointee. Look how Trump's America treats illegals.

This is very bad news for Bahamians. The Cruise Line companies make all the money on the tours. Now they will own the restaurants (sure a Bahamian may operate it but the rent OMG).

Look at Great Harbour Cay with these two island ports.

See any rich Bahamians living on Great Harbour Cay even though hundreds of thousands of tourist go right next door? Just a few low paying jobs, that's all.

If Rcl gets the western end of Paradise Island, Nassau may as well shut down.

He argued: “If skills are not readily available then ***our workers need to work along with the experts to be trained and learn those skills.*** It’s not that we do not understand a Wartsila engine, as in any industry a company acquiring new fleet requires the staff to train on its operation and maintenance.

**Always asking to be trained. No one taking the initiative to learn about something before it gets here. You have 6 months, go on line, find out about some courses. Prepare yourselves.**

Why would I want lazy and unmotivated people working for BPL?

It takes time to train, so that will put up the cost and delay the installation. Just a gimme attitude, sad.

Economist says...

It will be interesting to see if this time they can make a difference. New Providence has been suffering power cuts for as long as I can remember (mid 1950's).

They are always buying new equipment that will solve the outages.

So far all I can say it proves that some are never able to learn from their mistakes.
