Let us all hope that the new covid-19 protocols are successful after international air travel resumes and tourism turns around to the extent that the gov will not have to borrow $1.3 billion for the upcoming fiscal year.

The EU is trying to stay relevant. They do not butter the Bahamas bread. Their collective economies will fall by 7.4% this year due to the corona virus triggering the deepest recession in EU history. To continue to pick on smaller countries like the Bahamas by blacklisting them shows that they are beginning to grasp at the little economic straws they can get their hands on. The future bright prospects in the global economy will come from the far east and not necessarily China.. .Our negotiators are simply too nice so they will continue to move the goal post.

institutional Investors and high net worth individuals will buy those bonds. The Bahamas Gov will pay nothing. This is the time now to upgrade the cruise while there is no foot traffic and the pier's are empty.

**"The bar on Canadian-owned bank dividend remittances"**
While the bar on Canadian owned bank dividends remittances is understandable due to the impact it would have on the foreign reserves, What about the dividends from the local domestic Bahamian owned Banks, that are paid in Bahamian dollars ???? clarification is needed, will the local banks still be allowed to pay dividends that will stay in the local Bahamian economy ????

Let the cruse lines go to their private cays. Keep them away from all inhabited Bahamian islands. Bahamian employees on the private cays can be scheduled on three month duty rotation with Covid- 19 testing and two week quarantine during the last tow weeks of the three month duty cycle.

yep sideburns is retired. Brave went in there with a plan . That punch picture is from 2016 . he trying to remake history but he has no legitimacy to the 55th anniversary of Black Tuesday. Some people will do any thing to obtain power...SMT

Brave was Grand standing on the 55th anniversary of Black Tuesday when sir Lynden threw the mace out of the house of assembly. History cannot be repeated and mocked when there is no achievement to justify a worthy cause. His act demonstrated nothing but a hunger for power.
