The government doesn't give a damn about fostering entrepreneurs. They are regarded as fresh meat that they can cut steaks off of to feed the government's insatiable need for money.

There are assumptions made in the work visa programme that are not valid. No company is going to hire foreign nationals living in The Bahamas to do work in the USA. If you look at the remote job sites, they all stipulate that trained foreign workers must actually reside in Canada or the USA with similar standards for education, work and infrastructure.

In the almost-three years since the government announced the formation of a Tech Hub on Grand Bahama, nothing has happened. Well, almost nothing. One company moved in, made a lot of promises and moved out again. The minister responsible for making a tech hub is either lazy or way out of his league. There was good advice given on the first Tech Hub summit, and none of it happened. They tried to take the easy way out with a bit of legislation and some cockamamie ideas about Foreigner visas to live in Freeport and work in the USA.
The plan went nowhere. The committee was chaired by a bunch of people with no power and wrong ideas. In short, it was a microcosm of the government.
Bahamians are incapable of taking having an achievable vision and taking firm, productive action to achieve those goals.

Hey, isn't this Donovan Moxey's company? I wonder how he avoids conflict of interest now that he is BPL chair?

Bahamians already pay more taxes than countries with income tax.

If a train leaves Pittsburgh traveling to Chicago at 60 miles per hour and another train leaves Chicago traveling for Pittsburgh travels at 80 miles per hour and the distance from Pittsburgh to Chicago is 460 miles, in how many hours will the trains meet?

Agree. It's the only way to prevent slackness.

I would be interested in seeing the no_BS, truthful publications of volume and trading activity.

Who would have thought that Tourism could collapse almost overnight?
