1.6 billion the PLP added to the debt
It was Ingraham who ordered the boats ..Tell me what have we got for the 1,6 million the PLP added to the debt ..Did we get any roads ,airports , harbor dredged , new ports ,,NO for our 1.6 billion dollars and 600 million in VAT revenue we got BAMSI and two Carnivals ,basically some buildings in the bush built by cronies in Andros and two week long parties ..
What he could influence is to use our treasury to guarantee the extra billion to finish it ,,,take care of PLP that got their money tied up in it and get another 5 years to take care of all them as that white elephant sits there b/c w Cuba opening and our Labour and electricity cost no one is buying Baha mar
If you buy a half million dollar home here you are eligible for residency
If they had to give 500 residencies to high worth individuals that's fine ..We already offer residencies to high worth individuals ,,ie Joe Lewis who did Albany ..That is really the new offshore banking .That is what we have to sell ,sun ,sand ,sea and favorable tax rates with very little extradition in financial matters .We have underpopulated and unpopulated Islands From and beaches From Bimini to nearly Cuba to sell .
Its going to be our money ,I bet the government has guaranteed the loan from the Chinese bank to finish it ..
Sandals got along just fine before opening here and will continue to ,, Apart from Atlantis we got squat ,,The family island /second home market only put 20% of our revenue ,,,cruise ships are all going to private cays w. short night stop in Nassau ,,,cuba the next cruise ship run ,,In 5 years we can,t pay our civil service ,,prepare or keep whistling in the graveyard
Cuba is doing three million a year w/ out the US ..Even Jamaica has increased market share since the great recession ..We are still doing 98 stopover numbers just charging more ..Lets not even talk about the exit surveys at MOT ,,a f,,,king horror show ..DR is kicking the snot out of us w/ 4 million stop over a year ,,Everywhere at this latitude has beaches like us ,,Xenophobic rants do not translate into more arrivals
we have not increased our stop over visitor numbers since our 1998 level 1,5 million .Everyone else in our region has been gaining DR is kicking our butts w/ 4 million a year ..Believe what you want numbers don,t lie .We have an expensive brand and crappy service ..I have access to the exit surveys in the MOT ,,not a pretty picture .There is sun ,sand and sea all aroun d us we are not that special ,,Cuba has our beaches ,mountains ,rivers and 4000 ,,yes 4000 cays
They will close the place and move on ,,with our energy cost and sullen under performing workforce they can do better else where .They already have 3 in Cuba ..Why do you think DR is doing four million tourist a year and our stop over has not increased since 1998 ,,1.5 million a year ..Better value ,,better service elsewhere ..You make a lot more tips/gratuity off of four million guest than one and a half million ..I work in tourism and the guest continually complain about the automatic 15%for shitty service ..Cuba is open our strong arm tactics are growing old ..there is plenty sun ,sand and sea in the Region
