Premier Rufus Ewing said this new concept in long stay ushers in a new era for the TCI. “This European Plan style hotel development provides a welcome diversification to the TCI tourism sector as it is more of a traditional hotel, rather than the previously prevalent condominium model in the TCI.” As for what we get on the Grace Bay strip with this new property: 124 luxury hotel guest rooms, penthouses, resort residences and associated facilities.

The total project site area is 20.92 acres. Finance Minister Washington Misick and Acting Governor Anya Williams were a part of the signing; Minister Misick said, “This is an exciting time in the TCI and we welcome this new development”.

The IMF has marked up its forecast for economic growth in The

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, March 8, 2018 – Nassau – Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, the Hon. Peter Turnquest said in line with the brighter economic outlook globally and especially in the U.S., the International Monetary Fund has marked up its forecast for economic growth in The Bahamas.“Real growth in 2018 is now forecast at 2.5 per cent, up from 2.2 per cent at the time of the last Budget.  For 2019, the forecast calls for growth on the order of 2.2 per cent,” the DPM said during his Contribution to the 2017/18 Mid-Year Budget Debate in the House of Assembly, Wednesday, March 7, 2018.He said this outlook reflects projected modest growth in tourism sector output, due in part to the sustained improvement in key source markets and in light of the multi-billion Baha Mar resort becoming fully operational.  In addition, DPM Turnquest said construction activity should be supported by a number of varied-scale foreign investment projects in both the capital and the Family Islands.“In this environment, employment conditions are expected to continue to gradually improve while inflationary pressures should continue to be well contained over the near-term, as international oil prices remain relatively low.”He said as for monetary sector developments, the Central Bank expects continued high levels of bank liquidity to be a dominant feature.  “As well, credit conditions are likely to remain subdued, while bank arrears and non-performing loans should continue their downward trajectory, underpinned mainly by additional asset sales and ongoing loan recovery efforts.The DPM said further, banks are projected to stay highly capitalised, thereby mitigating any threats to financial sector stability.He also noted that developments in respect of external reserves are expected to depend heavily on factors such as the performance of foreign exchange earning sectors, international crude oil price developments and the Government’s financing activities.DPM Turnquest added, “However, external reserve indicators are likely to remain above international benchmarks during the year.   At the end of January, external reserves totalled $1,460.5 million, equivalent to 5.5 months of total merchandise imports and well above the benchmark of three months.” Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more
