Into this season of peace, joy and goodwill bursts the great hope and promise of the New Year. Christmas or Christ’s Mass inspires us to give thanks, to rejoice and to reflect like the Shepherds and Magi of the Nativity story. We treasure the good days and survive the challenging ones and we continue to pray for our brothers and sisters in the Southern Islands who are still suffering from the aftermath of Hurricane Joaquin.
2015 brought both sunset and a new dawn to Freeport. As we celebrate the milestone 60th Anniversary of the Hawksbill Creek Agreement, where do we go from here? The Grand Bahama Port Authority will be working assiduously with Government to reach consensus and closure regarding extension of certain expiring concessions; the goal being to create the most conducive and dynamic environment for other investment in Freeport, to provide meaningful jobs and increased opportunities for all in Grand Bahama.
