Prime Minister Perry Christie has confirmed he will deliver the keynote address at the 23rd annual Bahamas Business Outlook (BBO) conference, scheduled for January 13, 2014, at the Melia Nassau Beach Resort.
“At Outlook 2013, we were very pleased when Prime Minister Christie expressed an interest in returning to speak in 2014. We feel privileged that he is taking time from a hectic schedule to join us,” said Joan Albury, president of TCL Group, founder and chief organiser of the Business Outlook.
“Given our 2014 theme: ‘Charting the Course for Growth in 2014’, the programme would not be complete without a presentation on the subject from the country’s leader,” added Mrs Albury.
“As is the Business Outlook tradition, the forum will focus on the challenges the Bahamas faces and the opportunities, which are indicated for the New Year. Attendees can expect to get a lot of timely and informed facts and opinions on such subjects as VAT, the tourism and hospitality picture, of which Baha Mar and its anticipated December 2014 opening are a significant part. Many of us want to learn more about their potential impact on economic growth.”
The Bahamas Business Outlook, established in 1991 at the height of the Gulf War, attracts presenters and attendees from across the economic and social spectrum.
The one-day symposium brings together many of the prime movers and shakers in the Bahamas, particularly from the financial services and business sectors. The forum is also widely seen as a prime opportunity for networking.
Held each January, Bahamas Business Outlook is the first of the six forums that take place annually. The five other Outlooks cover Grand Bahama, Abaco, Exuma, Andros and Eleuthera.
